Welcome Letter


¡Hola! ¡Bienvenidos!
Most of the kids know me as Ms. Acevedo from last year. I recently got married to my high
school sweetheart on July 31st
, so my new name is Astrid Gambino! I was so blessed, excited,
and honored to be the Spanish teacher at First Baptist Christian School last year. This year I am
really looking forward to also be teaching 6th grade Social Studies and 8th grade Bible.
About Me:
I was born in Honduras, but grew up in Louisiana since I was a month old! I graduated from
Salmen High School in 2013. I graduated from LSU in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science degree in
Psychology. After graduating, I taught English as a second language online for 2 years. God has
always led me to ministry with children and I have a genuine gift and heart for them. I have
done everything from babysitting, nannying, teaching Sunday school, volunteering at local
public schools, and more. As I stated in my intro, I am so blessed to have finally gotten married
this summer, after a COVID related postponement. My husband and I have 2 cats and a husky
that we spoil and love so much.
My favorite things:
• Jesus
• Candy
• Coffee
• Traveling
• Saints Football
• LSU Football
• My husky
• My cats
• Purple
I cannot wait to grow alongside the students this year. Despite the worldly circumstances lately, God
has shined through with blessings and love. This school year will be amazing!
