Teacher of the month
by Heidi Jurado
Verónica Tovar is a highly appreciated teacher that brings life to the classrooms and whenever she goes. She was born on August 17 in Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua and at the early age of 13 she began working in a cafeteria as a chaser. For her career, she studied and received a Bachelor in Mathematics and Master's in Education at UTEP. Mrs. Tovar never believed that she would be a teacher in fact, that was the last thing she planned career wise, but since she started teaching, she knew that was her profession. Mrs. Tovar loves LPI with all her heart. She considered the staff, administration and students her second family. Mrs. Tovar loves her students so much that these nine years as a teacher, she has been trying to be the best role model for all her students.
From the editor's desk
Another year at LPI has begun, the sound of the bell followed by the waves of students of all kinds going back and forth, up and down, here and there. The line at the bridge has been taken over by maroon, and our faculty is doing what they do best, inspiring the future generations. Hopefully, this year will be amazing-for our seniors who are in a countdown towards graduation; amazing for our sports teams which we trust are going to have a outstanding season; and amazing for all who are giving their time to clubs serving our school, each one in its very own way.
One of those clubs is Newspaper, a small but at the same time big club, full of people willing to help and serve our school by recording its brightest moments and hardest hours. People whose only reward for hard work is seeing their name written under the article they wrote; and still, that satisfaction is priceless. You get to know that our school is much bigger that what it seems, and there is always a story to tell. I strongly encourage you to join and fill that same satisfaction and spirit by yourself, and if not, remember that the LPI Times is always there, ready to listen and write about the happenings in and around campus.
Note: If you're not a member, but you have something to share with the school community, please let us know, and it can be published!
Here to help,

Respect Women-L.P.I.'s own entrepreneur
by Ruth Moreno
Oscar Andres Ramirez, a senior here at Lydia Patterson began his own clothing line this past summer. Something that began as an idea blossomed into promoting shirts and clothing to people world wide.
"RW started back in April as a joke, but then it ended up being something personal," the entrepreneur stated. The unique name is the message Oscar wants to give and spread to as many people: Respect Women. Although we don't know the back story we did discover that Oscar made a capsule of t-shirts back in July, which sold out in just hours.
"I obviously would like to make more capsules,but it depends on school and time I have."
