Richard E. Cavazos Elementary

3rd Grade

10 Years of Experience


My favorite thing about teaching is seeing students take on the enthusiasm and excitement for learning. I love to see them excited about solving problems and overcoming challenges. It is rewarding to watch their love for learning grow each day in spite of their abilities or disabilities. I get to know their minds and their hearts, and have an impact on the students’ lives.

On behalf of our entire staff, I thank you for visiting the Richard E. Cavazos Elementary School website, home of the Cheetahs.   The elementary school years are a particularly exciting time for students and our “Cheetah Family” of staff, families and community members are here to serve each and every student’s unique needs and talents.  Our school community strives to instill in each child the excitement that comes with learning, where the bar is set high and academics are aligned to the Texas State Standards. Our teachers and staff are highly qualified and committed to serving all aspects of each student, academically, emotionally and physically.


Many great things happen at our school through family and community collaboration.  If you would like to be involved at Cavazos Elementary, please consider volunteering or attending one or more of our parent activities, like our Parent Teacher Association (PTO) or our Watch D.O.G.S program.   I encourage you to fill out a volunteer packet during the year which is available in our school office. Your involvement makes a tremendous positive difference for students and our school. Indeed, it is one of the cornerstones at Richard E. Cavazos Elementary School.  


During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of Cavazos the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at our school.  As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!  


 I am looking forward to working with you and your student as we work toward an academically successful school year.


With kind regards,


Joseph Gullekson

WATCH D.O.G.S. a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at Cavazos during the school year.  The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for WatchDOGS to provide assistance at the school. WatchDOG volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher's guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards, or spelling.   Please join!
