Hello My Name Is...

Claudia Zelaya

Mrs. Zelaya with her husband

I am thrilled to a part of Grapevine-Colleyville ISD and the Silver Lake Elementary School family as your 2nd Grade Dual Language Teacher.

I was born and raised in Fort Worth, and I am proud to be a Texas teacher. I have worked in education for over five years - two years as a teacher's aide and three years as a 1st grade dual language teacher. My experience covers all levels from Pre-K through 6th grade. I look forward to continue my teaching career with the Silver Lake Family.

I received my Bachelor's from Champion Christian College in Arkansas and received my Master's from Liberty University in Virginia. Upon attaining my Texas Teaching License, I was able to give back to my childhood community and neighborhood through the means of teaching. Now that GCISD is my home, I am honored to be able to motivate and empower through learning experiences with the scholars in our wonderful community.

In my spare time, I love to go fishing with my husband, Alcides, cook and bake, watch movies, play with our four-legged child, Xena, and barbecue and spend time with the family.

I look forward to meeting you and your family. We will have a superb school year!


Estoy muy emocionada de ser parte del districto escolar de Grapevine-Colleyville y la famila de la escuela Silver Lake. Soy maestra bilingüe del 2do grado.

Nací y crecí en Fort Worth y estoy muy orgullosa de ejercer mi profeción en el estado de Texas. He trabajado en educación por más de 5 años - 2 años como asistente de maestra y 3 años como maestra bilingüe del 1er grado. Tengo experiencia de educación en los niveles del 1er al 6to grado. ¡Me encantará poder continuar mi carrera de maestra con la familia de Silver Lake!

Recibí mi licienciatura de Champion Christian College en Arkansas y mi maestría de Liberty University en Virginia. Después de conseguir mi licencia en la rama de educación, tuve el privilegio de regresar de nuevo a mi comunidad infantil en forma de maestra. Ahora que GCISD es mi hogar, tengo el honor de motivar y animar a los alumnos de nuestra maravillosa comunidad.

De pasatiempo me encanta ir de pesca con mi esposo Alcides, cocinar y hornear, ver películas, jugar y entrenar a nuestra perrita Xena, y hacer carne asada para convivir con mi familia.

Será un placer conocer a usted y su familia. ¡Tendremos un año escolar espléndido!
