I'm Ruben Gonzalez and I'm from Alice, Tx. I'm 26 years and hold the honor of being the first college graduate from my entire family.
I went to college on a baseball scholarship and played for two years before a major injury ended my career. I then graduated with my Associates in Science and moved to San Antonio where I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in the Spring of 2017 from UTSA with a ESL Teaching Degree. I had my first year of teaching last year at Alice ISD, but after a whole year of commuting back and forth I wanted to move closer to where I currently stay.
Being a big brother and cousin to so many in my family is what inspired me to become a teacher. I took on the role of teaching and giving advice to many of my family members throughout my life, young and old, and have inspired a lot of my family to go to college again or for the first time.
I want to be someone to instill this type of thinking in the minds of young children.
I'm excited to be apart of Calallen ISD and to be apart of your community.
Parents, I'm sorry I haven't been able to send emails out to everyone individually. The district is currently working on setting up my contacts for Blackboard and as soon as I get something I'll be sure to contact everyone.
