Hi! My name is Nicole Cutaia 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 with highest honors. This will be my 7th year teaching in Spring ISD. I taught one year of kindergarten and 5 years in first grade at Meyer Elementary. This will be my first year teaching at Anderson and I am so excited to be a gator!

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!

Hello! My name is Jessica Gamez. This is my eighth year at Anderson Elementary and I am so proud to be a gator! I grew up here in Spring and attended Jenkins Elementary, Dueitt Middle School and Spring High School. I graduated from Texas Woman’s University in Denton with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. Before coming to Anderson Elementary, I taught at Savannah Elementary in Denton ISD where our school mascot was also a gator.

I have two pets, a Yorkie named Ellie and a guinea pig named Lola. Lola is very excited to be our class pet this year! When I am not at school, I enjoy traveling to Walt Disney World, reading, watching movies and doing all kinds of craft projects. I look forward to meeting you and working with your child this year.
