Mrs. Velma M. Salinas

 My name is Velma Salinas and I was born and raised in Kingsville Texas.  Kingsville is home to several of South Texas' most famous institutions such as the King Ranch, Texas A&M-Kingsville, Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, the National Toxins Research Center, Coastal Bend College and the Naval Air Station. I graduated from the University of Webster in Kansas City, Missouri with a BA in Business Administration. I also have a Masters of Science (Occupational Training & Development) from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi.  I have 12 years of teaching experience and six years of administrative experience in public school settings.  I started working for Edgewood ISD in the fall of 2014. I am teaching Principles of Business, Marketings and Finance at Brentwood Middle School and Fine Arts Academy.  The goal of this course is to create a culture of high expectations and continuous improvement that provides middle school students with a foundation for success in high school, future studies, and careers. Students explore college and career planning within specific career clusters. The students research labor market information, learn job-seeking skills, and create documents required for employment.  Students use self-knowledge to explore and set realistic goals.
