Welcome Letter

By August 4, 2021 Uncategorized

¡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!
