Ms. Nelly Marquez

Welcome to the most amazing Math & Science classroom you will ever enter!!! At least in elementary ;-) This year we will research, discover, create and investigate the many worlds of Science and how they collide with Math.

Some info about your soon to be favorite teacher, Ms. Marquez.  I am from Dallas and I am a Dallas Mavericks Fan For LIFE!!  I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice and recently earned my Masters in Education from the University of Texas at El Paso.  This will be my 7th year in education and my first at Wortham Oaks Elementary.  I am an extremely proud Navy Veteran and have traveled the world.

My little family is made up of my husband, a retired Navy Diver, my 3 amazing kiddoes, Keanu (25 yrs old), Katelynn (21 yrs old) and my sidekick, Ezra (9 years old). We have 2 dogs, Maverick, a chocolate lab and Pebbles, a Yorkie.

An interesting thing about me: I was both a police officer in the Navy and served briefly in a local police department before finding my true calling as a teacher. I love to run/workout, love to read, paint and love going to the movies!

I look forward to teaching you, working with you and learning from you.  Here's to an amazing year at Wortham Oaks Elementary!!
