Pre - K Bilingual Teacher
Hi, My Name is Gabriela Arzola and I am excited to be part of Thomas Elementary School. Teaching is an absolute passion of mine!
I was born and raised in Juarez Chihuahua, Mexico. When I graduated from high school, I moved to El Paso Texas to attend The University of Texas at El Paso. Go Miners! I got my bachelor’s degree in 2004 in Interdisciplinary Studies in Special Education. I am a certified educator in the areas of Generalist (Grades EC-4), Special Education (Grades EC-12), and Bilingual Education (Grades EC-4).
I've been in the education field since 2004. I taught resource room for 4 years and Pre-k bilingual for 6 years in El Paso, TX and then moved to Plano, TX where I started teaching 1st grade and moved down to Pre-k… My MOST favorite grade level!
I am married to a wonderful man. We have two adorable boys and a fur baby named Polo. We love to spend time together playing soccer, and watching movies!
