 Students at Mariano Gonzalez Sr. Elementary School feel supported and valued by their teachers.  Students know they are capable of being successful           academically and socially. Students are able to articulate what they are learning and why they are learning specific content. Students also demonstrate a strong sense of community within the classrooms and throughout the school. This strong sense of  community is observed in the student-to-student interactions as well as in the students’ relationships with teachers. In their Symposium session, Gonzalez leaders will explain what they did to nurture such a positive, transformational culture. In particular, they will emphasize how they supported and influenced the relationships teachers have with students and their families and the positive relationships students maintain with each other.
