    Claudia Gonzalez


    My name is Claudia Gonzalez, and I am so excited to be joining the Dual Language Immersion team at Cumming Elementary this year! I was born and raised in Mexico but have lived in the US for the past 20 years. I have a college degree in Computer Science and a master’s degree in Business Administration. While I enjoyed working in the Information Technology world for eleven years, I found a special passion for working with teachers, students, and their families. I live in Cumming with my husband Carlos, my son Daniel (he graduated from SFHS this year and is going to college in the fall), my daughter Tatiana (going to 11th grade at AAI), and my dog Brownie. I’m so thrilled and honored to be part of the Cougar Nation, and I can’t wait to meet everyone!
