My name is Gabriela Andrade, and I am teaching 6th Grade English Language Arts and Reading. I am originally from Brazil and have spent my life moving all around the globe. Most recently, I moved to Texas from Maui, Hawai'i. I am an alumnus of Kealakehe High School and the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa. I am elated to be teaching at Rockdale Junior High this year!
I am an avid reader, a surfer, a lover of ice cream and freshly baked bread (though not necessarily together), and a small animal cuddler. I so look forward to getting to know all of my students this year!
