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 second year teaching 4th grade at Challenger Elementary. I previously taught 4th grade ELAR at Barbara Cockrell Elementary as well as 3rd grade self-contained for a year. 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 am so excited to be partners with Mrs. Steele this year!
A little about me: I am a mom to two very active kiddos, Ava and Kaeden. Ava is an 8th grader at Pearland Junior High East. She was so excited to make the Jr. High cheerleading team. Kaeden, my son, is a 6th grader at Alexander Middle School, and boy, does he keep me on my toes! He plays football for the Pearland Patriots! Ava stays really busy with competitive dance and tumbling, and Kaeden enjoys playing baseball, basketball, football and video games. Some of my favorite places to shop are: Target, Kendra Scott, and Amazon. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling to the hill country and other states, 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!
