My name is Ms. Kelly Nunez and not only am I the 8th grade homeroom and junior high Math/Science teacher, but I am also a proud SG Mission Alumna, Class of 2000!! Mission has been a part of my life since birth, having an older brother that attended Mission Elementary as well. This is my 5th year teaching and nothing makes me happier, excited and proud, than to be back at the place that instilled so many values in my life.
My time spent in the San Gabriel Mission School and parish has taught me many important life lessons that still hold truth and value in my life today. Mission not only strengthened my Catholic faith, identity and education, but it also prepared me for success at a college-prep high school. I learned leadership skills from being on Student Council throughout my time in Jr. High, and the value of being a part of a team and building a strong work ethic from playing the many different sports offered. I also learned about building strong friendships, and am still friends with many of my Mission classmates currently.
I love to give back to the school that gave me so much, and volunteer most of my time towards extra curricular activities because I believe in the skills that they teach our students. I am one of the Academic Decathlon moderators, the girls’ softball coach, and can often be found at the different sporting events cheering on our Spartans! Although my time this year has been limited due to going back to school to work on my Masters in Education, I still try to find a balance and support our students in all that I can.
