A teacher murdered in Tuesday’s horrific shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, has been named.
Eva Mireles, 44, worked for the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District for 17 years, according to her aunt Lydia Martinez Delgado. Her family also recognized her.
According to her teacher profile, she was a fourth-grade teacher who enjoyed running and hiking.
“I come from a caring, humorous, and loving family that involves a UCISD officer (Ruiz), a college graduating daughter (Adalynn), and three furry pals (Callie, Kane, and Koda,” Mireles stated in her bio.

Adalynn Delgado, Delgado’s daughter, paid homage to her mom on Twitter, writing, her lovely mama, she will miss her forever.
She has no words to convey how she feels right now, tomorrow, and for the rest of her life, Mom, she wrote in a touching tribute.
The eulogy concluded with: she wants to thank you, Mom, for always being a motivation to her. She shall be eternally grateful to be her daughter. To her mother, she shall see her again.
Delgado acknowledged her niece’s death in a Facebook post on Tuesday, saying, “One thing’s for sure: her lovely niece did not survive this bully’s deeds.”
Delgado expressed that she is enraged that these shootings are still taking place. These youngsters are really innocent. Rifles should not be widely distributed. This is her hometown, a little town of less than 20,000 people. She never dreamed this would occur to anyone, never alone loved ones. All one can do is pray fervently for the country, state, schools, and, most importantly, all families.
Klarissa Quiller, Mireles’ cousin, also posted a statement on Facebook, stating, this world is really harsh. Her heart is aching, and she is at a loss for words. It’s mind-boggling how somebody can be so cruel as to harm innocent citizens or kids. Please continue to pray for the soul of their beloved cousin, who died in this disaster along with all the kids.
Sgt. Erick Estrada of the Texas Department of Public Safety said on Tuesday night that the death toll had risen to 19 kids and two adults.

Joe Biden makes emotional address following the mass shooting at a Texas elementary school
"When are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? Where is our backbone? It is time to turn this pain into action" US President Joe Biden makes an emotional address following the mass shooting at a Texas elementary school. DETAILS | https://ab.co/3NAVMeiPosted by ABC Perth on Tuesday, May 24, 2022
President Joe Biden addressed the nation in a roughly eight-minute speech hours after the killing, stating, in part, he had hoped that as president, he would not have to carry out another atrocity in Uvalde, Texas. A primary school. Second, third, and fourth graders who are lovely and naive. How many young kids who observed what occurred saw their pals die, as though they were on a war.
Biden proceeded, parents who will never again see their kid. Never have them climb in bed with them and hug. Parents whose lives will never be the same again. Losing a kid is like losing a piece of one’s soul. There is a hollowness in your chest; you feel as if you are being pulled into it and will never be able to escape, choking. It’s never the same twice. It’s a sentiment shared by the siblings, grandparents, family members, and community people who have been left behind.
