Mr. Meliton Velasquez

A Dallas native with two decades in education, Meliton Velasquez grew up as the youngest of seven siblings with five sisters and one brother. He began his educational journey at James Bowie, Barbara Jordan Elementary, Atwell Middle School and Skyline High School. 

He earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Texas at Arlington. After graduating, two of his sisters, who were educators, suggested that he pursue teaching and he has not looked back. Mr. Velasquez taught Kindergarten- 5th grade and high school special education in both Dallas ISD and Mesquite ISD. He earned a Master of Education in Administration from Texas Woman’s University. He was an instructional coach at Ben Milam Elementary and an Assistant Principal at Bayles Elementary. His true joy has come from the students who have gone on to become accomplished adults and great contributors to the Dallas community. He credits his success to people like Principal Santos who have encouraged and inspired him to grow beyond his comfort zone.

"As educators, one of our most important roles is to inspire and push our students to their potential and to show them what is possible. I believe that Solar Prep for Girls is a school that is setting the bar and pushing all educators across Dallas to want to become better, dream bigger and go beyond what is expected and I am excited to be a part of that."

Mr. Velasquez has two boys, Diego and Lorenzo. He enjoys hiking and camping with them in his free time.
