Hello Families!

My name is Jessica Gonzales and I will be one of your 4th grade teachers this year! I will be teaching along with Mrs. Nagel and I can promise you, it will be such a fun year having both of us! This is my 7th year teaching, I taught 2nd grade my first year and have taught 4th the past 5 years. 

Fun fact...I was a Madison Mustang! I attended Madison 1-6 grade and attended MPS through high school. I also did all my teaching hours at Madison and another fun fact, I did my student teaching under Mrs. Nagel 8 years ago and we have been teammates throughout the years. 
I graduated in 2015 for NAU with my BS in Elementary Education and started teaching 2nd grade at Madison. I am currently in school to get my Masters Degree in Clinical and Mental Health so I can become a counselor for children outside of the school environment.
That is why you will only have me as your teacher part of the time because I have to complete a 700 hour internship starting this November all the way till next September. So, Mrs. Nagel and I will be splitting the week! She will be teaching Monday, Tuesday, and every other Wednesday and I will be there Thursday, Friday, every other Wednesday. 
I know this might seem different, but we make a wonderful team and I can assure you that your child is in the best of hands and getting the best of both worlds having both of us. 
A little about me... For fun I love to go out and do stuff, but I also love to stay home and relax (when I have free time from homework). I love to workout, I really do enjoy it! I love the ocean, I was born in California and moved here when I was little. I love going on cruises! I LOVE to shop!!!! I love to hang out with my soon to be husband (Our wedding is in November) and our fur children, Lucy and Oakley. I love Disneyland!
I cannot wait for this year and to make learning fun. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me! The quickest way is by email and I typically respond within less than 24 hours. We are partners in your child's learning and I can't wait to work together!
