Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Robert Gonzales

Hola, I’m Mr. R. Gonzales, 8th grade Math and Algebra 1 teacher, and I am one of the originals of Sauceda Middle School. Why do I say that? Because I have been here since we opened this school 16 years ago. I started the National Junior Honor Society then and is still going strong now. I have been in the education field for 28 years and when I hear from some of my former students and their accomplishments, I get filled with pride and joy. That is what makes teaching so rewarding for me. 


I went to the University of Texas (Hook Em Horns) and UTPA, I started my career in the business world where I worked as an accountant for many years until I heard the calling to make a difference in this world. That is when I started teaching young adults at Donna ISD not only about my content, math and Algebra, but about life and how the choices we make now impact our lives forever. I am so glad I made that career decision in my life. I have served in many capacities here at Sauceda and for Donna ISD and have enjoyed each one.  


I look forward to another school year and the challenges it has in store for us, but remember together we can succeed and accomplish our goals…… SI SE PUEDE!
