Congratulations to Mrs. Gonis for receiving the recognition as Almond Grove’s Teacher of the Year.

Mrs. Gonis has been teaching fourth grade at Almond Grove for the past three years. Prior to that she taught in the upper grades in OUESD, worked as a preschool coordinator and also in administration.

Mrs. Gonis is a dynamic educator who creates a caring classroom with high expectations for students. Mrs. Gonis’s smile and enthusiasm is contagious! She sees the bright side in every situation and goes above and beyond to support her students, families and the entire Almond Grove School Community.

Walking into her fourth grade classroom, you see learning come alive through unique hands on experiences, Reader’s theatre productions being done, and incredible writing going on.  Mrs. Gonis is a language arts lead at her grade level, leads spirit activities at Almond Grove and is in charge of fourth and fifth grade student leadership.

Mrs. Gonis helps brings school spirit alive and contributes to many service learning projects at the school site. She is even in charge of Almond Grove’s cookbook which brings delight to our families. We are thrilled to announce Mrs. Gonis as Almond Grove’s teacher of the year.
