Eli Vela


Welcome Home, Panthers!  I am Coach Vela and I’m looking forward to a great school year.  I am a graduate from St. Mary's University where I received my Bachelors of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Math and Reading. I’m beginning my 22nd year of teaching in Middle School and have taught all 3 grade levels in several subject areas, which include Math, Science, Health and PE/Athletics.  I also coach football, track and soccer.

 I am married with 3 children and 2 dogs.  My wife, Priscilla, is a school counselor in NISD.  My oldest daughter Kristina enjoys living in Germany.  Alexa will be a Junior at Reagan HS and stays busy with Student Council, HS soccer and Club soccer.  Ethan, my youngest, will be a Freshman at Reagan and will stay busy playing football.  My two dogs include a weimaraner, Khaleesi, and a chihuahua mix, Ralph. 

In my spare time, I like to BBQ, be outdoors, watch my kids play sports and visit Disney World.  A personal goal for me this year is to train so I can run the Disney Half Marathon in 2022.

I am excited to get started this school year!
