Mrs. Laura Gonzales
Welcome to Pearland High School. This is the web page that you will use to check for class updates, print extra copies of missing handouts, and reference if you just aren't sure of what is going on in class. I am excited to teach each and every one of you. I truly believe that this will be one of the most important years of your high school career. A great start in a student's freshman year will help them be more successful throughout the rest of their years in school. We will build a great academic foundation together that you will be able to use in every class after you leave mine. You aren't just reading books and writing essays. You are learning how to think critically and how to analyze things, and these are skills that are essential to being successful in whatever field you may choose.
