Master of Science in Special Education

Mrs. Julie Gonzalez

My name is Julie Gonzalez, and I teach third through fifth grade at Alamos Elementary in Murrieta, CA. This will be my sixteenth year as a special educator, however, my first full year at Alamos. Prior to teaching, I worked as an instructional assistant in special education for six years in San Diego.

My passion is in helping students reach their potential both academically and behaviorally. I strive to provide a caring and nurturing learning environment where students are thinkers and problem solvers. My behavior management system is responsibility-based and emphasizes solutions rather than reactions.

On a personal note, I have been married for 21 years and have three grown children--all attending college. My eldest son is attending Humboldt University and my middle and youngest are both attending the University of California San Diego.

I am proud to be part of such a wonderful school with amazing administrators, teachers, and support staff and such supportive families!
