Welcome Letter & Week of March 15th – 19th

¡Hola! ¡Bienvenidos!

My name is Astrid Acevedo. I am so blessed, excited, and honored to be the Spanish teacher at First Baptist Christian School for the 2020-2021 school year.

I am a first year teacher and I am so excited to begin this journey God has laid out for me.

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 babysat, nannied, taught Sunday school, volunteered at local public schools, and more. I recently got engaged to my high school sweetheart on November 18th, 2019. We pray Covid ends soon so we can continue forward with our wedding plans. We 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

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!
