Mrs. Geselle Vela, MS


I am excited for another year at Veterans Memorial High School, home of Patriot Nation! For those of you new to our community, welcome to our family. It is my honor to serve as the English 2 Lead teacher and the Women's Head Soccer Coach. 

A little about myself: I am a proud 2002 Judson High School graduate. I earned my Bachelors of Arts Degree in English Language Arts and Reading from Texas A&M University and then went on to complete a Masters Degree in Educational Administration at Texas A&M University-San Antonio. In 2016, I was blessed to be chosen to "return home" and am humbled to have been one of the few to open the doors at VMHS. This is my 5th year as a teacher and head coach in JISD; 13th overall.

Parents/Guardians: please know that I will do my best to instruct/coach your child(ren) to the best of my abillity on a daily basis. I am known to have a structured classroom with high expectations and will hold your child(ren) to those expectations to prepare them for their futures. I look forward to having the pleasure of meeting all of you and your children with the beginning of a new school year!

Please assist me in ensuring your student is actively using Canvas for attendance, instruction, and updates.
