She has dedicated herself to making Xceed DME Academy students feel at home, no matter where in the world they are from, by organizing a wealth of extracurricular activities including field trips, beach outings and cultural cooking sessions. Dr. Gonzalez’s goal is to educate the whole child while preparing them for college and beyond.
