Hello! My name is Maria Blanco. I was born in El Salvador and studied there as a lawyer. I came to the United States in 2006 and moved to Arlington. I started to volunteer here at Barrett when my daughter started kindergarten 2009. Then, I started to work as an assistant in the MIPA program in 2015. In 2016 I was transferred to be a kindergarten assistant and I have been here ever since. In my free time I like to read books and listen to music. My favorite book is called “Los Cuatro Acuerdos” by Dr. Miguel Ruiz. I love working with children and I enjoy working here in Barrett!
