1st Grade...the BEST!

Teaching first grade is my passion! I have been so fortunate to be able to teach first grade for 24 years. I graduated from Tarleton State University a long time ago.  I have one loving husband, two beautiful daughters, three rascally doggies, and together we make up the Gonzalez Group! I enjoy going to the East Titan football games and watching my husband coach. Go Titans!
