Degrees and Certifications:
Hi there and welcome to 4th grade! My name is Jennifer Gonzales and I am so excited to be teaching the 4th grade again this year. This will be my third year teaching 4th grade at Challenger Elementary and 6th year of teaching. I have taught ELAR for 5 years. I love being a Challenger Eagle!! I graduated from the University of Houston - Clear Lake with my bachelor’s in interdisciplinary studies. I am certified to teach EC - 6th, ESL and GT.
This year I am teaching Language Arts, Reading, and Writing. My partner, Tiffany Steele, teaches Math, Science and Social Studies. I'm so excited to get to teach with Mrs. Steele again this year. Mrs. O'Neal is also my Co-Teacher. We had a blast teaching reading and writing to my students last year, and are eager to work together again!
A little about me: I am a mom to two very active kiddos, Ava and Kaeden. Ava is starting her Freshman year and PHS. She was so excited to make the JV PHS Cheer team. Kaeden, my son, is a 7th grader at Pearland Junior High East, and boy, does he keep me on my toes! He will be playing football of PJHE and I can't wait to watch him on the field! Pearland is our home and we sure do love this little/big town! When we have free time we love to travel to the hill country and other states, and hangout at our beachhouse with friends and family. Some of my favorite places to shop are: Target, Kendra Scott, and Amazon.
Parent/teacher communication is important to me, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions/concerns.
As always, thank you for sharing your child with me. I am looking forward to a great year!
Conference time: 2:15-3:00
