GT LEAD Teacher

My name is Danielle Velez. I grew up in Detroit Michigan and started my college career at Eastern Michigan University. I moved to Texas in January 2008 to attend Tarleton State University on a cheer scholarship. I graduated Megna Cum Laude in May 2011.
I have had a true passion for teaching since third grade, and I still carry that passion today! I truly feel teachers teach all professions, and I can’t wait to help spark interest in your little one! I taught first grade at Harmony Science Academy for 2 years , five years teaching first grade at Davis Elementary and one year in second grade. I began teaching GT LEAD at Silver Lake Elementary in 2020! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful daughter, Lillyanna.
