Mrs. Leslie A. Velasquez

Hello, My name is Leslie A. Velasquez.  I am so excited to be your child's 1st grade teacher this year.  I am happily married and have 3 wonderful children.  My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family.  I enjoy reading books and listening to music.  I am new to the San Antonio area and I'm excited to be part of a wonderful school and district.  Teaching is my passion and I have 16 years of educational experience.  I worked as an instructional assistant for 7 years before becoming a certified teacher.  I began my educational career by teaching 1st grade and taught that for 5 years.  The last 4 years I was 3rd grade teacher.  All of my educational career has been with Mercedes ISD.  I earned a Bachelor's Degree from UTPA and went through an alternative teaching program ACTRGV to obtain my teaching certification. I have heard wonderful things about the school and am happy to be a part of the El Dorado family.   I am beyond excited for this new start at a new school and to be back working as a 1st grade teacher.  I hope to inspire your child to love learning and look forward to celebrating their accomplishments throughout the year.  I am excited to be a part of your child's educational path and I'm eager for the school year to begin.
