Meet Mr. Gil



Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Jesus Gil

Welcome to kindergarten in room 2!  My name is Jesus Gil and I am very excited to be your child’s kindergarten teacher.

I have been teaching at Maxwell for the past twenty years. I may have had other sons or daughters from your family before. I love to make teaching fun and memorable for all my students. I have high expectations for my students, and I believe that my students can be successful in everything if they are given the right tools. 

I love sports, especially soccer so don’t be surprised if your child talks about soccer teams or soccer game! I graduated from California State University Los Angeles with a Clear California Teaching Credential.   I grew up in East Los Angeles, and attended Garfield High School. 

In Kindergarten we will learn all the letters of the alphabet and their sounds.  We will learn to read and write 3 sentences. We will learn all of the numbers to 30 and count to 100.  We will also learn to add and subtract this year. We will explore 6 units of inquiry.  Those units will cover learning about needs of a plant and animals, getting along with others, celebrations, community workers, the weather and pushes and pulls.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send a note in the Maxwell folder, or give me a call.  You can reach me at the school phone number, which is (626) 599-5300 or at the classroom phone number (626) 599-5342 before or after school hours. You can also email me at  I am always happy to talk to the families of my students. You are the most important people in my students’ lives! 

Let’s work together to make sure your child gets everything he or she needs to be successful this year!
