Mr. Ovidio Gonzalez

I am Ovidio Gonzalez, Cohort 3’s engineering teacher this year. I have been at Energy Institute High School for three years and I am excited to spend my fourth year getting to know you and your family. This year will be different, but the amount of effort I will put into creating an environment that is conducive to learning remains the same. I am here to help Energy’s students and parents, feel free to ask me for any help you may need during this time.

Hello! Xiong Thao here. I have loved science all my life and some of my favorite scientific experiences were studying reptiles and working with spotted owls in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I'll be teaching Physics and AP Biology this year, and I'm excited about the new learning opportunities and challenges! We'll work together exploring the physical and natural world and have a great year while doing so!
