Hi! My name is Nicole Gutierrez. I graduated from Lonestar College with an Associate of Arts degree and the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Teaching and Learning. This will be my 8th year teaching in Spring ISD. I taught one year of kindergarten and 5 years of first grade at Meyer Elementary. This will be my second year teaching first grade at Anderson. 

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my daughter Camila and my husband Kino. I love shopping, watching football (Go Texans!) and going to the park. I also love going to the movies and the beach.

This will be a fun filled year with a lot of learning and growing. I am so excited you will be in my class and I can't wait to meet you!

¡Hola! Mi nombre es María León, la maestra bilingüe de primer grado. Es un privilegio para mí poder trabajar como maestra bilingüe. A la edad de seis años llegué a este país y tuve la oportunidad de estudiar y recibir mi educación a través de los servicios de este mismo programa, “Bilingual Program." Tengo 15 años de experiencia como docente, de los cuales 9 han sido aquí en Anderson. Mi deseo es poder ser el medio que provee al alumno las herramientas útiles para lanzarlo al éxito aun en medio de las dificultades que estamos viviendo en estos tiempos. 

Llevo 18 años de casada con Antonio. Tenemos cuatro hijos: Benjamín 14, Karissa 12 Janeth 3, y David 2, y claro, nuestra mascota Toby. Cada año tratamos de vacacionar en familia, pero ir a México ya se volvió tradición.

Hello, I am Adriana Suljic. I am very happy to come back to Anderson to be the 1st grade Math and Science bilingual teacher. I grew up in Bogota, Colombia and I graduated from college with a bachelor of Microbiology. I came to the United States 20 years ago and this is my fourteenth year teaching bilingual students. I love spending time with my family and friends, riding my bike outdoors, swimming, and reading. I live with my husband Sani, my 11 year old son Benjamin and my dog Fluffy. I look forward to being your kid’s teacher and seeing their growth. 

Hola, mi nombre es Adriana Suljic y soy maestra bilingüe de matemáticas y ciencias de primer grado en la escuela Anderson.
