Message from the Principal

Dear J.A. Chalkley Community,

It is with immense pride and excitement that I introduce myself as the new Principal at J.A. Chalkley Elementary School.  I am extremely humbled by the opportunity to serve as a leader of this school.  I value diversity, stakeholder involvement and a family-like atmosphere, and knew that Chalkley is exactly the type of school that I wanted to lead because it encompasses all of those.

One of my strongest values is transparent communication, which creates a culture of authenticity and trust.  I have a true love and passion for students and education, and want to partner with each of you to provide your student with the best possible experience at our school.  As a father of two amazing children of my own, I understand the importance of sending your student to a safe and loving environment each day to grow and learn. I will always strive to make sure each of your children know that when they walk through the doors of Chalkley Elementary, they will experience just that. Students are more than a number or a pass rate, and I will continue to work each day to get to know your students, foster meaningful relationships, and advocate for what they need to reach their full potential.

As we enter the 2022-2023 school year, I hope to make this transition a smooth one for our students, teachers, parents, and community. I look forward to meeting and working with you all this school year and beyond.

Guillermo Gonzalez, M.Ed.
J.A. Chalkley Principal
