Yessika Torres, Instructional Specialist

  • Dear Kelso Parents,

    Welcome to a new school year! This year promises to be filled with new learning, flexibility, and a lot of effort to continue making our students successful. My name is Yessica Torres, and I am the Instructional Specialist and part of the administration team.

    I have lived in Houston for over 20 years and grew up in Venezuela, South America.  I graduated from University of Houston and earned my master's degree in Educational Leadership from Stephen F. Austin University.  I started my career in education in 2005 as a fourth and fifth grade bilingual teacher.  I have experience in multiple grades in elementary and my areas of expertise include English Language Arts, Spanish Language Arts, English as a Second Language and Bilingual Education.

    At Kelso, I have found wonderful children who are eager to learn with the support of dedicated and hardworking educators and a welcoming community.  Like every year, I have a mixture of excitement and anticipation to start the school year especially during these unprecedent times.


    At Anna B., we believe that we are stronger together.  


    You may email me at or call the school at 713-845-7451. 


    Thank you,


    Yessica Torres
