Mrs. Melissa Gutierrez
Hello Kindergarten Family!! My name is Mrs. Gutierrez (or G for short). I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. We are going to be doing so many exciting things over the next few months, and of course we will learn a lot. Here are some things you can practice at home with your Kindergartener: https://www.readingrockets.org/article/reading-tips-parents-kindergartners
I am a Tyler ISD graduate. I attended Clarkston as a child, then on to Moore and finally graduating from Robert E. Lee. After graduation I began college at the University of North Texas. I graduated summa cum laude from Chaminade University of Honolulu in 2007 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I am also a Google Level 2 Certified Educator. This will be my second year teaching Kindergarten at Clarkston.
I have 2 children, one in high school and one in the 5th grade. I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have 2 beautiful boxer dogs, and a bearded dragon that usually resides in our classroom, stays home with me for the summer. For as long as I can remember I've wanted to be a Kindergarten teacher, but when I'm not teaching I enjoy building furniture and decorating my house!
