Hi! I'm April Ulibarri and I'm so excited to be joining the first grade team this year! Last year, I joined Horizon as a long-term substitute in the fourth grade before becoming the classroom teacher. Before Covid, I worked here at Horizon as a long-term substitute in first grade and kindergarten as well as a daily substitute.
I was born and raised in Arizona but had the privilege of living in Japan and England for 6 years! I received my Bachelors of Science in Psychology from The University of Maryland and my Masters of Science in Elementary Education from Western Governors University. I taught kindergarten for 2 years in Arizona before moving to Sterling.
Outside of school, I stay busy with my 4 kids and husband! My oldest just graduated from Potomac Falls and my youngest is almost 2! I also have a first grader here at Horizon as well as a 4-year-old!
I'm looking forward to working with this sweet group of first graders! Please feel free to reach out via email with any questions you may have.
