Micaela Varela, Principal

It is both a privilege and a blessing to serve as the Hornedo Middle School Principal. I became Hornedo's third Principal in May 2015, and am excited about beginning my journey as an Hornedo Tornado. The teachers and staff at Hornedo amaze me with their dedication to our students. Hornedo is a wonderful place for children to spend their middle school years, and I am proud to be a part of this important phase of their lives. We have an amazingly talented student body with diverse abilities and interests. They all make Hornedo the exceptional school that it is.

I have been a part of EPISD for the past seventeen years as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal. I taught at Kohlberg Elementary and was the Assistant Principal at Kohlberg and Crosby before moving to Polk Elementary School where I was an administrator for ten years. I started at Polk as the Assistant Principal in 2005 and became the Polk Principal in June 2009. I was born and raised in El Paso and attended EPISD schools: Park Elementary, Charles Middle, and Andress High. I am a graduate of Texas Tech University where I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and I received my Master's Degree in Education Administration from UTEP. My husband, Joe, and I have three beautiful children who fill our lives with happiness and joy.
