In December of 2016, I graduated from The University of Texas at Arlington with my Bachelors of Science in University Studies Degree. I hold cerifications in Special Education (Early Childhood - 12), Core Subject (Early Childhood - 6), and ESL-Supplemental.

While this is my first year as a teacher, I worked as a Special Education Aide in Lancaster ISD for three years while I completed my degree at The University of Texas at Arlington. I had the pleasure of collaborating with teachers in Content Mastery and Transition units.


My name is Amberlee Velasquez and I am the Special Education Resource Teacher at Russell P. Schupmann Elementary. I was raised in Mesquite, Texas. It brings me joy to enjoy life with three of the sweetest children you've ever met. Addyson, Ace, and Jaxon are all of the motivation and encouragement a mother could ask for. My husband, Justin, is also a Special Education Teacher as well as an offensive football coach in Forney. I am a Pepsi drinking, Mr. Goodbar eating, mason jar collecting, any and all things turquoise or gold loving, Cowboys fan by birth, and Rangers fan by marriage. In my free time, I am a mom-tographer and enjoy nothing more than capturing priceless memories for people. As a former cheerleader, I look forward to being our student's loudest supporter and most passionate coach. We will persevere and exceed the limits that even the sky is said to bring! I look forward to growing with our students this year!
