Ms. Ketra Fitzgerald

Hello. My name is Ketra Fitzgerald and this will be my 3rd year at Anderson and my 19th year in the field of education. I was born and raised in Dequincy, Louisiana and attended Southern University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. I then relocated to Prince George’s County, Maryland where I obtained a Master of Science degree in Curriculum & Instruction from McDaniel College. I have had the pleasure of serving in many roles as an educator including classroom teacher (1st - 5th grades), Reading Recovery Teacher, Reading Specialist, and Instructional Coach. Teaching has always been a passion for me. By making my classroom a safe, fun and disciplined place for my students, it is my hope that students will enjoy coming to my classroom and learning something new every day.

Hello! My name is Jessica Gamez. This is my seventh 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. It’s going to be a great year!

¡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 13 años de experiencia como docente, de los cuales 7 han sido aquí en Anderson. Es mi deseo ser para el alumno un medio que provea las herramientas útiles para lanzarlo al éxito a través de mi conocimiento y muchas experiencias. Deseo despertar en cada estudiante el hambre de querer sobresalir académicamente e impactar sus vidas diariamente con un excelente ejemplo.
