About the teacher
Welcome to My Page
My name is Sonia Gonzalez, I am a 3rd grade Science and Social Studies teacher. I am new to teaching at Legacy Elementary but not new to teaching in Ocala. In 2014 to 2018, I worked at the Extended Day Program part at Legacy, so some of you may know me from there. I worked as a Group Leader 3 with Mrs Tanner. I fell in Love with working at Legacy, the staff and students. My goal then, was to work as a teacher at Legacy and years later here I am.
I was born in NYC and decided to move to Florida in 2011. I came to care for my dad who had Cancer (he has been in remition for a few years now, which i am so grateful). While I was in NYC, I worked for some important agencies such as Department of Health, as a school nurse for 5 years and Isabella Nursing home for 2 years. The Archdioceses of NY, as a family worker for 2 years at a preschool and the Department of Education as an assistant teacher for 15 plus years. While working I got my Associates Degree and raise 3 children. I moved on to getting other degrees which led me to teaching.
I do hope we can work together and lead your children to a successful year. Looking forward to working with all our parents. We/I have a dojo account Called "Legacy Trio" please join me/us (Ms. Nubin and Mrs. Heyliger, 3rd grade team teachers) there. I am pretty much active and give updates via that app. All contacts will be via Dojo as well.
Thank you for visiting my page.
