Ms. Lisa Velez

I graduated from Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania with a bachelor's degree in Political Science and a minor in Russian. After graduating from college, I entered the graduate program in Slavic Languages and Literature at Ohio State University. While I was a graduate student, I had the opportunity to study in Moscow for several months. I worked in Moscow for five years instead of returning to OSU.  

I  moved to San Antonio in early 2002. I was blessed to have become a teacher in Special Education. My goal as a teacher is to inspire students to reach their full potential. This is my 16th year at Tejeda Middle School as a special education teacher.  I love working with students and helping them achieve their goals. 

My daughter graduated from Madison High School in 2020.  I am so happy she was raised in NEISD schools. I know she received an excellent education.
