Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jimmi Gonzalez. This is my second year here at Heritage and I am so happy to be apart of such an amazing and dedicated group of people.
I am teaching 8th grade English and publications. This is my first year teaching publications and I am really excited about helping student create a keepsake for their memories here at Heritage.
I graduated from Eastern Oregon University in 2013 with a Bachelor's in English and then returned to school at Boise State University and earned another Bachelor's in secondary education. I am currently attend BSU again to earn my master's degree in teaching English to English language learners. I believe the strategies used in teaching English to English language learners as well as those from Universal Design stand to benefit all students.
I have five beautiful daughters and my son. He just turned a year old. I am originally from the small town of Milton-Freewater, OR and I have been living in Meridian for the past five years. I love it here in Idaho because there is always so much to do. I don't have much spare time, but when I do, I love to read (I know how typical of an English teacher) as well as crafting.
I am looking forward to an amazing year getting to know all of our students and parents and working towards academic growth.
