Mrs. Vela

Howdy! My name is Gloria Renee Vela. I go by my middle name Renee :). I am pleased to be a part of the Canyon Ridge Coyote family.Thank you for giving me the opportunity to enrich your child's life. I have been teaching for 28 years. I received my master's degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. My philosophy of teaching is that all children can succeed if given the opportunity. Give a child something they feel confident in and there isn't anything they will not attempt. Corpus Christi, Texas is where I was born and raised, but decided to move to San Antonio in 1999. San Antonio is an amazing city with endless possibilities. I have the most amazing husband and three incredible kids Samuel 33 yrs., Dani 30 yrs., and Sierra 28 yrs. old. I can't forget to mention that I have my own grumpy cat - Willowmena and Super silly Garfield looking cat "Wilson." My kids are my life!
My goal is to see your child grow and succeed in 5th grade at Canyon Ridge Elementary School. GO COYOTES!!!
