Hello! My name is Elizabeth Gonzalez and I am a former professional ballerina turned first grade teacher! I received my Bachelors Degree in Dance from Mercyhurst University in 2010. After dancing professionally for six years I went back to school to earn my Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University. I love reading, my favorite books will always be the Harry Potter series! I also love dogs, I have two rescue pups of my own named Kobe and Snooki. I am very excited to be a part of the Welsey Lakes first grade team and look forward to a great school year!
