Lisa Gonzales

My closest friends would say that I am:
Ambitious, funny, creative

When I need to relax, I will:
BREATHE! And blow bubbles

My secret to enjoying my job as a teacher is:
Knowing that there is always something new waiting to be learned!

Little things that make me happy are:
Sunflowers, cheese, mushrooms

In my first year of teaching, I wished I knew:
How to maintain composure and handle awkward, uncomfortable moments

When I need help, I usually turn to:
Trusted and experienced colleagues

A great teaching tool or resource to have is:
A bank of go-to icebreakers and fillers

The best teaching advice I was ever told was:
You may not connect with some students and that's entirely ok. There are plenty of other hungry minds out there to feed.
