Ms. Vanessa Torrence

I am so happy that I will be your child's teacher!  Here is a little bit about me.  I am a native Texan and love everything about Texas except the August heat. I have been with Little Elm about 15 years.  My time here started at King Early Learning Academy were I taught the blended 3 year old class.  When King closed I was moved to Hackberry where I taught Kindergarten, 1st Grade and Pre-K.  Due to large enrollment numbers at Chavez, I was transferred here to teach Pre-K.  I love teaching the littles!!  They are so eager to learn and love coming to school.  This is truly my passion!

I have 1 son and 3 dogs. One is a yellow Lab named Bella.  The other 2 are German Shepherd pups named Zeus and Ziva.  I collect ladybug items and love taking the dogs on long walks.  Some day I hope to travel to Ireland, England, Austria and Switzerland.
