Ms. Devon Velchoff

Hello and welcome!

I am one of the 5th grade teachers at Mendez Elementary. I teach reading, writing and social studies and couldn't be happier to do so. I graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Elementary Education and am currently pursuing a Masters in Educational Technology. There is nothing I love more than watching my students learn and grow as readers and writers. In my class, I encourage all students to live that reading and writing kind of life. I hope to create a classroom environment where all students are able to share ideas and collaborate respectfully with each other, a place where both diversity and kindness are celebrated! I believe that all students have the right to learn and enjoy being at school. When I'm not at school, you will find me sitting by the San Marcos river with a good book. I also enjoy cooking and the occasional video game.

Communication is very important to me. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to email me and we can set up a time to talk further.
