Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Velasco

Hello! Thank you very much for visiting my page. I am excited to be going into my 5th year at Rolling Ridge. This year I will be co-teaching with Mr. Colger and Mrs. Whitehurst in 4th grade. I will also be working with Mrs. Gulley in Kindergarten. I was born in New York, but moved to Virginia when I was about 10 years old. Teaching was not my first career choice, but it has become my passion. Out of High School I attended the Art Institute of Washington and earned a Culinary Arts Degree. I got a job as a line chef at Clyde's Willow Creek Farm in Ashburn VA. After about 10 years, I had decided to make a career switch. I went back to school at George Mason University and earned a degree in History and Special Education. I have been married to Pamela Velasco for 6 years. We live in Sterling VA and do not have any kids yet. In our free time we like to go hiking in the mountains, watch movies, and travel to new places. I love to travel and have visited many countries, including several in Central and South America. My wife is from The Philippines, so we have been there several times as well. I also love sports and reading and writing history. If you have any questions or just want to get to know me better, please feel free to email me. Thank you and lets have an awesome school year!
