Mrs. Gawlik

The beginning of the school year is here and I'm so excited to meet and work with your child! This year will be filled with many exciting learning experiences where we will challenge our minds and develop independence in our school, community and beyond! 

This year begins my 8th year of teaching Special Education in Judson ISD and here at Salinas Elementary.  Prior to finding my love for teaching, I worked in Corporate America for Altria/Kraft Foods in Human Resources.  I have a true passion for working with people of all ages.  After some reflecting, I decided to go back to school and dedicate myself to teaching children.  I graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word in December of 2008.  Upon entering the education field, I had the opportunity to substitute in a Special Education classroom here at Salinas and I fell in love!  I have made many connections with my students and their families that will last a lifetime!  I am honored to call this Life Skills classroom my "home away from home"!

Please know that I will work hard to make each day exciting, rigorous and meaningful for your student in their academic day.  Our classroom is highly structured and routine oriented.  I look forward to working with each of my kiddo's families to make our school year successful.  I firmly believe the success of our students' is rooted in a strong relationship between our school and families.
