  • Alexis Gaona

    Mrs. Gaona  
    My name is Alexis Gaona and I am an 8th grade science teacher and I coach 7th grade girls athletics. I have been teaching science for 7 years. I graduated from McMurry University in Abilene, Texas. My degree was multidisciplinary studies 2 science 4-8. I played soccer at McMurry for 4 years and I was the captain my senior year. I met my husband Adrian Gaona in college and we teach together here at Collins. My husband teaches 8th grade Math and he coaches with me. My hobbies include, soccer, crafting, hunting, boating, and going to professional athletic games. I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas which is where my husband and I got married two years ago. This past summer we bought our first house and spent all summer decorating and moving in. I am super excited to be here at Collins again and look forward to this year and the years to come.
