The Bridgeport Alternative Learning Center teacher spotlight for Hispanic Heritage Month is Alexis Ureste. Miss Ureste embodies our vision of always, in all ways, to meet our students' social, emotional, and academic needs.

Miss Ureste was born in Hereford, Texas, then moved to Bridgeport. She was involved in many organizations, such as T.A.F.E. She was the chapter’s Region 11 President and Vice President.

She graduated from Bridgeport High School and attended Weatherford college and graduated with an associate's in science. She then transferred to West Texas A&M and received a Bachelor’s in general education. Miss Ureste is proud to be a first-generation college graduate .

Miss Ureste has been teaching 6 -12th grade courses through Edgenuity for 2 years now and is currently the BIC Middle and High School teacher. Here is one thing that the ALC Principal, Aaron Dodson, had to say about Miss Ureste's contributions: “She does an excellent job of establishing expectations for her classroom while building relationships with her students.”

“What makes me proud of my Hispanic Heritage is the values passed on from generation to generation. Being Hispanic is one of the things I am most proud of. My culture represents beauty, love, family, hard work, and so many more positive qualities,” said Ureste. 

The Bridgeport Independent School District would like to recognize Miss Ureste for all the hard work that she has contributed to our schools and the positivity that she has brought to our students.
