Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Veronica Escobedo
I'm Mrs. V. Escobedo, and I'm super excited about returning to Larkspur this year! This is my 23rd year teaching, but last year was my first year at Larkspur, and I absolutely love our school!! Go, Larkspur Leopards!! 🐆💓💗💥
People sometimes get me mixed up with the music teacher, Yvette Escobedo, because we have the same last name. But I'm the Veronica one, lol!
I have a bachelor's degree in English from UT Austin, and a master's degree in Special Education from UT San Antonio. With that formal preparation, together with years of experience and professional development, it's no wonder I'm so excited about working with exceptional learners, and every other student who needs a more unique approach to teaching!
I grew up in San Antonio, and think it's the best city around! My husband works for the San Antonio Zoo, and together we raise 3 pretty funny dogs--Gumball, Leela, and Duckie. I love tending my garden and "backyard habitat." I've managed to create a caring space for Monarch butterflies, ladybugs, hummingbirds, sparrows, blue jays, woodpeckers, cardinals, squirrels, and even an occasional frog or two. I'm sure there's more out there, but I lose count. 🦋🐞🦟🐦🐸
I love dark chocolate, pizza with extra pepperoni, pancakes for dinner, and unsweet tea. I also write children's poetry and hope to publish a book one day.🍫🍕🥞☕
That's about it for now. I'd love to meet you and hear about you, as well! Feel free to contact me for any questions you may have. And if we meet in the hallways, please say hi! I enjoy making new friends!
See you around!
Mrs. V. Escobedo 😁
