Background:

My name is Jeremias Gonzalez and I have lived in Atwater, California all my life. My mom is an elementary school teacher, and my dad is a high school math teacher. Between the two of them I was taught to have a strong work ethic and they instilled in me a passion for all things academic, which has remained with me to today. Currently I am attending UC Merced following two years at Merced Community College, and I'm ready to take on more advanced math and physics courses after my introductory physics and calculus classes.
