Sonia Aguilar

Principal, IDEA Academy Pharr

Sonia Aguilar is a compassionate and visionary leader. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in sociology with a minor in psychology from the University of Texas-Pan American.

Upon graduation, she began teaching 1st Grade and worked her way through an alternative certification program. While working with students, she saw one student after another struggle in the area of reading and was compelled to work with them. She became passionate about finding a solution to this problem. Aguilar returned to UTPA to complete her Masters of education in reading, and earned qualifications to be a reading specialist and a Master Reading Teacher in the state of Texas.

As principal of IDEA Academy Pharr, Sonia wants to inspire children to be lifelong readers through the power of choice. Her goal is to impact the lives of her students and see them move on to higher education.
