Welcome to 8th grade ELAR 2014-2015.

My name is Sylvia Yvette Gonzalez, I have been teaching here at K. White for 8 years. I graduated from James Pace High school in Brownsville, I attended college University of Texas at Brownsville. I am married and have a 3 wonderful children.
I enjoy teaching and spending time to getting to know my students. I enjoy my students and I care for them as if they were my own.

I believe and encourage my students to be confident. They can and will pass the STAAR.
I will work hard to make sure our class time will be productive in learning and promote confidence to ensure positive attitudes towards testing.

I have attached the UIL coaches and dates for this year. Please view the attachments.
