Hello, my name is Jacquelyn Velasquez and I am proud to be joining the kindergarten team at Sienna Crossing this school year. This is my 7th year teaching. I graduated Suma Cum Laude from the University of Houston-Downtown with a Bachelors of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2012. From there I started my teaching career in Pasadena ISD and taught second grade for two years and kindergarten for one year. In 2015, my family and I moved to Sienna Plantation and I taught kindergarten for the past three years at Quail Valley Elementary. I am very excited to join my twin boys, who will be in first grade this year, and work with the sweet students in our community!
I can honestly say my love for education truly awakened when I entered the kindergarten classroom. I love working with this age group and seeing how excited they are to learn. I enjoy having fun with the kids and researching ways to make learning engaging and relatable for my students. I truly treasure the time I have with my students and watching them grow throughout the year.
When I am not at school, I love spending time with my boys, baby girl, and husband. We love going to the zoo and hanging out at the beach!
