Heather Gonzales is the principal of Haltom Christian School. She is married to a Fort Worth police officer, and together they have three beautiful daughters who inspire her to cherish every moment.
From an early age, Heather displayed a passion for education. She pursued her teaching degree at the University of North Texas and holds a Master's degree in Education Administration from Texas Wesleyan University. However, it wasn’t until homeschooling her own children that she realized the importance of teachable moments and the paramount effect a partnership between parents and teachers can have in a child’s education.
Heather's goal is to make sure every student has a memorable educational experience. She loves seeing the wonder on each child's face as they explore curriculum and God's word. She ensures each child at Haltom Christian School knows why they are an ARCHER - that their aim is to love God and others, that they were each created to hit a specific target, that following Christ leads them straight to their mark.
Heather's mission is that the Lord's purpose be established at Haltom Christian School. By God's grace and divine intervention, she is excited to embark on this adventure with the Lord at HCS!
