Sandra Barba-Hernandez | Thomas Elementary Music Specialist
I enjoy working with all our kiddos at Thomas Elementary in the music classroom! This will be my 4th year teaching overall, and 3rd year teaching at Thomas Elementary. I am grateful for my Specials Team at Thomas Elementary, and I feel fortunate that at Plano ISD, Fine Arts are a priority. My goal is to help students develop a lifelong passion and appreciation for music.
I lived in Guadalajara, Jalisco (Mexico) for most of my childhood before moving to the Texas Rio Grande Valley for 11 years. I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education (vocal/choral) from The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) and completed my student teaching at Edinburg CISD before coming to the DFW area.
I have sang in choirs for over half of my life through high school, university, and community ensembles. During college I got to tour the state of Texas performing with my university choir, and I also got to participate in opera performances.

During my free time I like to travel with my husband and friends, attend concerts and music shows, create art, play video games, and hang out with my cat Yuki.
