Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kerri Gonzalez
I am one of two ESL (English as a Second Language) specialists at West Cabarrus High School. Before becoming an ESL educator, many years ago, I began my career as a Spanish teacher. All of my degrees came from The Ohio State University. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and another in Spanish, a Masters in Foreign Language Education and another in School Administration.
My career has been long and rewarding. Classes I have taught include: Spanish levels 1-5, high school and middle school Spanish (including classes for native speakers), ESL at both middle and high school levels, American & World History, and Civics. For nine years, I also served as a lead ESL teacher where I worked at the district level for Columbus City Schools in Ohio.
My husband, Carlos (who is from Mexico), my 12 year old son, Charlie and I moved to North Carolina from Ohio almost 5 years ago. We speak Spanish and English at home (except for the dog; he only barks). I look forward to getting to know all of you!
