Mrs. Mercedes A. Gonzales
My name is Mrs. Mercedes A. Gonzales. I am returning for a second school year to Willis High School as a special education teacher in a specialized instructional classroom. I am beginning my 17th year as an educator in Texas schools. I have taught and/or coached in four public schools and one private school.
I was born and raised in West Texas (Odessa, TX). In September 2017, my family left West Texas and moved back to this area. My husband is a history teacher and coach here at Willis High School. We have four children. Our three youngest live at home. We also have three dogs (Roxy, Prancer and Dasher).
In May 2001, I graduated from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin (Odessa, TX) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. I am certified in English, special education, physical education, and ESL (supplemental).
I look forward to working with your child this 2018-2019 school year and also to many more years of teaching here at Willis High School!
