Principal's Welcome Message

l Dr. Gerardo Leal, Principal 
Phone: 713-778-3470

Dear Families and Friends,
Thank you for visiting our school's website. We are thrilled to share with you the amazing learning and instruction that is occurring on our campus daily. At Neff ELC, we strive to provide all of our students the best and highest quality of instruction available. In particular, we design our instructional and learning activities utilizing the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework.  One of the primary focus  of UDL is to remove any instructional barriers that may frustrate, distract, or impair our students from maximizing their learning potential.  UDL allows for instruction to be designed and tailored using student's learning abilities, background, and experiences in crafting instruction that is relevant to their learning and academic needs. Another major focus of UDL is to provide our students with multiple options for them to engage, learn and express what they are learning. We also know that it is imperative for our students to develop oral language, early literacy skills, critical thinking and collaborative decision making to become Global Graduates.
