Welcome to Mr. Velez's Teacher Page


Greetings! My name is Stephen Velez, and I have been teaching in DCPS for 19 wonderful years, the last 12 here at Browne as a Pre-K 3 teacher.  I am blessed to work with the dynamic and talented Ms. Brenda Moss!

On this page, you will find links to various resources, as well as information about Distance Learning.  PLEASE visit and use the link for My YouTube channel.  Here you will find lessons on alphabet knowledge, letter sounds, counting, shape recognition, science, and drawing, as well as read alouds.  I recommend watching at least 30 minutes throughout the day.  Many of these lessons build on and extend activities we were working on prior to school closing.  Also, please subscribe to the channel, then you will receive notifications when new content goes up (daily)!

Enrollment season has begun! Please go to the link at the top of this page for enrollment information for the 2020/2021 School Year and the proper forms needed.  As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or the main office.

Please do not hesitate to reach out whenever you need.  I look forward to keeping in touch and continuing learning together, even when we are apart!
