Mrs. Alida Gonzalez
Hello and welcome to 2nd grade!
My name is Alida Gonzalez. This is my 7th year teaching and my first year at Graham A. Barden. I have taught in Washington State, Okinawa (Japan), California, and now North Carolina. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade. I am excited about another great year!
I grew up in Washington State and attended Washington State University, where I completed my bachelors in Elementary Education. I also attended San Diego State University where I completed my Masters of Arts in Education with a concentration in Dual Language and English Learner Education.
My husband Jose, my son Romeo, my two daughters Abi and Alexia and I moved to New Bern in 2022. We have enjoyed our new home so far. I enjoy walks, going to the beach, reading, running, and spending time with my family.
I truly enjoy being an educator and love seeing how much students grow in just one school year. I look forward to pushing my students to do their best in a safe and welcoming environment.
