About Me

Dear Parents, 

 Hello welcome to Bowie! My name is Mrs. Gamez, and I will be your child’s fourth grade reading teacher this year.  I am working with a wonderful faculty and staff  where communication with them is key to improve learning. I am pleased to be working with such great people.  I have met many of the fourth grade parents all whom have been very warm and  welcoming. I am very happy to see how involved the parents are in their child's education. Together we will help your child succeed in the fourth grade. I have many exciting things planned for this school year and am eager to implement them.  I will be spending a lot of time with your child this school year and therefore would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

My education includes having a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts with a Bilingual Generalist teaching certificate. My official teaching career began working for the Bryan School District as a first grade teacher, for three and half years.  Since then, I relocated to Brownsville and am now working here in Harlingen CISD. At Bowie I served as a third grade teacher for 3 years and this will be my first year as a 4th grade teacher. I am a firm believer that in teaching, we are always learning and improving on how to meet the needs of each child in the classroom. In addition, as teachers we must continue to adjust our teaching styles in order to keep current with educational trends, curriculum, and technology. 

I am very interested in conversing with you regarding your child. I provided several ways for you to contact me.  You may contact me through remind, class dojo, email at [email protected]  or you may drop by my classroom after school any day except on our faculty meeting days which are every Tuesday. I have an open door policy where parents and students are welcome to come into my classroom after school and meet with me.  I am often in my classroom working late.  However, if you would like a more definite appointment with me, you may email me or call me so that we can set up an appointment.  In addition, you may write a note and have your  child hand it to me.

We will be working together in building your child’s academic experiences. Therefore, I will need you to support my academic, homework, and behavior policies throughout the school year. I look forward to meeting with you throughout the school year.

Thank you for your support,
Mrs. Gamez
