Ms. Silvia Gonzalez
Welcome to Kindergarten we are excited to see you!
When entering my classroom, please don't let the noise scare you away. Kindergarten people are a very excited bunch; they love MATH, SOCIAL STUDIES, SCIENCE, and especially READING. Reading in Kindergarten is an adventure primarily when the Superkids are around. We love investigating and are the BEST explorers around.
My career started at West Oak Middle School teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade spanish. I have been here at Immaculate Conception School for the past 11 years where I have taught Kindergarten for the greater of ten of those years. I was awarded Educator of the Year in 2007 and then again in 2012. In 2010 I received the nomination for the Golden Apple Award.
My Kindergarten class keeps me jumping.
I was born in Chicago, Illinois where I have lived most of my life. I attended Our Lady of Guadalupe grammar school and then graduated from St. Francis de Sales High School, where my son graduated and daughter currently attends. I earned a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Chicago State University with a specialization in reading, math, science and language arts. I love reading, writing and spending time drawing and crafting. I also enjoy trying new and adventurous recipes out on my family, although they might not be fond of my culinary expertise. I am grateful to have a job that I love and allows me to draw on the elements of teaching that have long been a part of who I am while working with students who inspire me and keep me smiling.
