Subjects Taught
Spanish II


I received BA and ME degrees in English and Spanish from Delta State University.    GO OKRA!


This is my 28th year in the classroom and my 12th year at Hernando High School.


My name is Señora Teresa Lara, and I teach Spanish II at HHS. This school year is my 28th year as a high school teacher and my 12th year at Hernando High. I am a 1990 graduate of Delta State University, and I completed my Masters degree in 1993 at DSU. In addition to teaching Spanish, I am the sponsor of the National Spanish Honor Society (Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica), the Spirit Club,  and the Class of 2018. I am also a member of the AATSP (American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese). I work part-time at Northwest Mississippi Community College - Desoto Center as an English teacher.

I am married to Coach David Lara who is Head Baseball Coach and serves as Athletic Director at HHS. We have three teenage children.  My son Reese is a sophomore at Northwest Mississippi Community College.  My daughter Riley Paige is a senior at HHS. She is active in the HHS Theater department. My baby daughter Anna Brooke is an 9th grader at Hernando High School. She is involved with the HHS Lady Tigers Soccer Team.

I enjoy sewing and reading in my spare time. We love to watch HHS sports. Our family's favorite activity is sitting around the bonfire and making s'mores in our backyard fire pit or grilling on the patio.  We attend Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
