Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Maria Gonzalez
After High School I attended the University of Puerto Rico at the Mayagüez Campus where I completed two bachelors degrees and a minor in Secondary education in Biology. While attending the University, I had vast opportunities to work in different investigations and collaborate with professors working with bacterias and parasites. I also worked with ALACIMA for several years giving work shops to elementary school teachers in Science. Furthermore, I worked for two years tutoring students from K-12 from private schools, two years with Macro International Corporation with Recreation and Marine Fisheries and one year with the Department of Education in Puerto Rico giving Chemistry and Environmental Science courses.
Six years ago I moved to Florida and I had the opportunity to work for five and a half years in a Drop Out recovery program helping students to strive and to fullfil their dreams of passing their state exams, graduating from High School, going to college to persuit a career of their choice, and even joining the military. I am a very proud teacher and I want all my students to have a chance and to achieve their goals and to become life long learners.
