Mr. Ibarra 

Welcome Message to Parents

I am excited to be the principal of CTE High School and lead students in 21st Century learning.  I am passionate about preparing students with skills to be a critical thinker, problem solver and life-long learner. The CTE High School will offer a unique learning setting, curriculum and 17 career paths to foster these skills. Parents, I look forward to working in a partnership with you for your student’s success.


I began my career in education as a high school social studies teacher at Eisenhower High School.  I taught for nine years and then served as an assistant principal for nine years at the middle school, ninth grade school and high school levels in AISD.  I then served as a middle school principal for 3 years and principal of Eisenhower High School for the past 7 years.  I have 28 years of experience all in AISD and am also a proud graduate of this district.
