Mr. Angel Velez
¡Hola y bienvenidos estudiantes y padres! / Hi and welcome students and parents!
My name is Angel Velez and I have been with Advantage Academy since 2018. This school year I will be the Spanish teacher at Grand Prairie East Campus, in which I will be teaching Spanish I & Spanish II. I am so excited to have the opportunity to help students learn a second language, specially one that I have known for 25+ years.
I obtained my Barchelor's degree from the University of Puerto Rico in 2013. I also started a Master's degree in 2014. In 2016 I moved to Texas and obtained my teacher state certifications. Since I graduated I have been teaching different grades levels, from Kindergarten all the way to 1st year collegue students. This journey has been full of great experiences!
As a teacher I aim to be a role model for the students. I also encourage students to approach situations with a positive attitude and to have a growing mindset. Every student can accomplish their goals in life with dedication, hard-work and lots of practice.
My favorite hobby is basketball, but honestly, I enjoy playing or watching any sport. I also like to watch series/movies and spent time with my family, while visiting and exploring new places.
