Ms. Neela Mandalapu
Hello! My name is Neela Mandalapu and I am thrilled to be teaching First Grade at Schiff Elementary and to be part of such a warm, dynamic, and diverse community! This is my fifth year of teaching at Jan Schiff Elementary.
Schiff Elementary is a wonderful place to teach and learn, and I feel lucky to be in this profession doing what I love. For me, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. I work to instill a love of learning in my students as I share my own passion for learning with my students. I strive to create a caring, safe, and engaging learning environment, which encourages students to believe in themselves and to do their personal best. Working with children and making a difference in their lives has always been my passion. This is my 13 th year of teaching in FBISD. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Education and a Master's degree in Psychology. I am certified to teach pre-K through fourth grade and I have also obtained my ESL and GT certifications.
I am a mother of 2 children. My son is a Data Analyst and lives in San Fransisco, and my daughter is a Junior at Univeristy of Texas, Austin. She wishes to pursue a degree in Law. Outside of teaching, I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my children, dog, family, and friends.
I totally understand that the pandemic has taken teaching and learning to new and different levels. I look forward to working with your child this year and help them to reach their full potential. We are all in this together and we will stay strong
