Mrs. Amy M. Vela, B. Sc., R-CPhT
Welcome back to a new school year!!!
I hope everyone enjoyed the summer, and now ready for the 2018-2019 school year at Churchill High School.
My name is Mrs. Amy M. Vela and this will be my 4th year teaching, however my first at Churchill High School. I would like to share a few tidbits about myself. I am a graduate from the University of Texas - Pan American where I attained by bachelor's in biology with a minor in chemistry.
My experience in healthcare spans 20 years in the pharmacy sector. I started as a pharmacy clerk, onto a pharmacy technician in an array of pharmacy settings, pharmacy auditor/specialist, and lastly pharmacy procurement and utilization management.
Things I enjoy are reading, shopping, and weight training.
My home life is rather simple. My husband works from home, he is an insurance agent; a 9 year-old (going on 40) 4th grader, and our 5 year-old fur baby, Princess.
I like to have open communication with my students' parents. With that being said, please take note that if your child is taking Principles of Health Science with me, sex education and CPR will be part of the curriculum for the second semester. Should you wish for your child to receive an alternate assignment for the sex education portion of the course please communicate with me by Friday, September 14, 2018 so proper accommodations can be made.
Note: I have a Remind for each of my class periods for announcements and reminders. Also, each class period has a Google Classroom where both students and parents are able to access assignments.
Once again, WELCOME back to a new school year!!! GO CHARGERS!!!
