Raul Velazquez, DL Spanish Kindergarten Teacher

Hello, my name is Raul Velazquez. I was born in LA and raised in Phoenix, AZ. I came to San Diego upon joining the Marine Corps in 1999 and I left the military in 2003. I married that same year and have been happily married since then. My wife Cindy is a teacher and we have two young daughters. Eliana and Bailey.

I worked for San Diego Unified in 2007 for their preschool program for four years. I also worked as a case worker for Neighborhood House for two years before becoming a full time substitute. In 2010 I completed my BA from San Diego State, and in 2016 completed my Masters in Education from the University of Phoenix.

I am excited about the direction that Creekside is headed. I form one half of the Dual Immersion Team and my English speaking partner is Mrs. Shannon Brown. Together we make an incredible team!

Please feel free to stop by Room 8 with any questions or concerns.  We are partners in your child's education.

Thank you,

Raul Velazquez.
