My name is Vanessa Velazquez, and I am excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Heritage Elementary School. This is my 12th year teaching, all in GCISD. I have taught first grade and Kindergarten. I am looking forward to having your child in my class and working together to make this a very successful school year.

I was born and raised in Del Rio, TX. I attended Sam Houston State University, where I received my Bachelor's degree in Science. I worked as a CNA for numerous years, while studying to become an RN. I later decided to follow my true dream of teaching.

I live in Hurst with my husband Jose, my daughter Analiz, and my son Eli. I love being mommy to these two cuties! We enjoy spending quality time together.
