Mrs. Nicole Cannon Gomez
It is my honor to serve the Edgewood community. I am proud to have been part of the E.T. Wrenn family for the past 5 years. I am dedicated and committed to serving and supporting our scholars through their middle school years so that they will be success in high school and life. I am passionate about providing an environment in which students feel safe, supported, and are active learners. It is my goal for every single child to reach and exceed their individual potential and goals. I will hold myself and our Wrenn team members accountable for student learning that is engaging and rigorous, and providing an environment that is supportive, safe and respectful. I always strive to be fair, consistent, a good listener, and continue to grow as a person and professionally.
I have served and supported students in a variety of capacities during my 27 years in education. I have served as a teacher, athletic coach, assistant principal, and principal. I am a proud Summa Cum Laude graduate of Texas A&I University of Kingsville with a Bachelor's Degree in Education. I then went on to receive my Master's Degree in Education Administration from Texas A&M University of Kingsville.
The core of who I am revolves around being part of a wonderful family. My life away from school completely and happily revolves around my beautiful grandchildren, amazing children, and loving husband! I love using power tools to create things, a good book, being outside, and a great cup of coffee. My two favorite quotes are from Maya Angelou:
“ I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
