Ms. Nelly Marquez

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

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 earned my Masters in Education from the University of Texas at El Paso.  This will be my 9th year in education and my third year 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 (27 yrs old), Katelynn (23 yrs old) and my sidekick, Ezra (11 years old). We have 3 dogs, Maverick, a chocolate lab, Pebbles, a Yorkie and recently added, Cooper, a beagle corgi mix.

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 spin, workout, love to read, paint and love going to the movies!

I look forward to teaching you, working with you and learning from you.  Gear up for a fantabulous year at Wortham Oaks Elementary!!
