• Military Family Liaison

    Hello and a huge WELCOME to our new military families and welcome back to the rest of our military community.


    My name is Tessie Vallez and I am the Military Family Liaison (MFL) here at Tom Lea Elementary. I have been in this position and serving our community for almost 8 years. I have the pleasure of being an El Paso native and growing up right here in the Northeast. I was also an Army wife for 15 years and lived in San Antonio, Ft. Leonard Wood, Grafenwoehr and Mannheim, Germany. We are now happily retired. One of my sons is in the Airforce and currently stationed in Germany so I am a military mom as well.


    My main role is to help military families transition to our school and provide any resources they may need. I am here for you and your student. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have.



    This school year looks very different for all of us and I miss not seeing our returning families or meeting and welcoming new families to our wonderful school. I look forward to seeing and meeting all of you, hopefully, soon! Until then stay safe!
