Mr. Velasco

Welcome to Spanish. I am excited to have your child in my class this year and I am looking forward to enabling their success in my class.

My name is Javier Velasco and I am a native speaker of Spanish. I have been a Spanish Teacher at the High School level for ten years and I am also the Girls Varsity Head Soccer Coach at Rahway High School. Language teaching has always been a passion of mine as our world evolves to include diverse cultures. As you know we are in an evolving era where the more tools we have to face our changing world and environment the better. From my own experience, I can say that having a second language is definitely a necessary asset.

I have provided your children with a list of classroom procedures and expectations for our class. I would appreciate it if you would review them together with your child for reinforcement. 

Once again, I am looking forward to having a GREAT year. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at
