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. If I don't look familiar, it is because this is my first year teaching at Challenger Elementary. The past three years I taught at Barbara Cockrell Elementary, and this is my third year teaching ELA (4 years total). I am excited to be a Challenger Eagle! I graduated from the University of Houston - Clear Lake with my bachelors in interdisciplinary studies. I am certified to teach EC - 6th, and I am ESL certified as well.
This year I am teaching Language Arts, Reading, and Writing. My partner, Kirsten Freund, teaches Math, Science and Social Studies. Ms. Freund and I worked together previously at Cockrell and we are excited to start our partnership this year!
A little about me: I am a mom to two very active kiddos, Ava and Kaeden. Ava is a 7th grader at Pearland Junior High East. Kaeden is a 5th grader at Alexander Middle School, and boy, does he keeps me on my toes! Ava stays really busy with competative dance and tumbling and Kaeden enjoys playing baseball, basketball, and Fortnite. Some of my favorite places to shop are: Target, Kendra Scott, and Amazon. I enjoy working out, spending time with my family, reading, traveling to the hill country, just traveling in general, and spending time at the beach.
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!
