Ms. Velecia Cruse

I am Velecia Cruse and I am very excited to be teaching 7th grade Reading and Writing this year.  This will be my first year at Manvel Junior High School.  I have previously taught Reading in Cy-Fair ISD and began my teaching career in Houston ISD.  My goal for all of my students is always to develp reading skills that will allow critical thinking and comprehension that will help them develop a love for reading.  Students will have the opportunity daily to read, write, and respond to culturally responsive text.  


I am the proud mother of two (2) beautiful daughters (Dr. Kimberly Johnson and Charlene Cruse, one (1) loving son (Dannie Johnson)(not my son-in-law, just the son I never had), and two wonderful grandchildren(Caleb and Jaidyn Johnson).  I am a christian and my faith and belief in God gets me through everyday.  I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking during my spare time.  I also enjoy reading and listening to gospel music.  


I look forward to teaching your student this year!!
