Hi!  My name is Nicola Gonzalez and this is my first year teaching at Diamond Valley Elementary.  This is my 5th year teaching and I have taught 2nd grade (both in school and virtual), 3rd grade and also Kindergarten.  Although I have loved teaching the other grades, Kindergarten has a special place in my heart.  I love watching the little light bulbs go off every time they learn new things!   I am very excited to be teaching Kindergarten again and have loved every minute so far at this wonderful school! 
 
When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my family.  My husband is also a teacher so it's nice to have the same days off together to spend with our family.  We have 3 boys ages 20, 18 and 13.  My oldest son got married over the summer, so now I have another girl in my family (finally!).  We love to travel in our RV and go camping anywhere in nature.  We love to visit National Parks and also have loved visiting the Pacific Northwest beaches. We can't wait to go back!

Hi, my name is Prentiss Bowler. I have been teaching on and off for 7 years. I have taught 2nd grade, Reading Recovery, and Kindergarten. I love teaching Kindergartners! They bring me so much joy. They’re such hard workers and always willing to try new things. 
A perfect day for me would be spending the day doing something outside with my 5 children and husband. I love chocolate chip cookies. I’m so thankful to be at Diamond Valley Elementary …it really is the best school in the world!
