Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Barbara Candelaria-Beltran

I am entering my 32nd year as an ELAR/ESL teacher and I am excited about teaching 5th grade at IES for the first time.  I am married to Michael Beltran and we are blessed with six adult children together.  My pride and joy are my two grandchildren, Jace, age 7, and Harley, age 4, and my "adopted" grandson, Will, age 2.  It was spending time with these little ones that pushed me to move to the elementary level after several years of teaching high school and middle school students.  Home is El Paso, Texas for my husband and I where we visit our parents and siblings regularly.  We moved to Ingram in 2017 and love small town life. I have four siblings and all five of us are educators. I guess you can say that we love children as my Dad has 20 grandchilldren and 10 great grandchildren. I am looking forward to a great year!!
