About Miss Colson



Welcome to Miss Colson’s Class

Hello! My name is Amber Colson and I am thrilled to be your child’s kindergarten teacher!! This is my third year teaching kindergarten and I know it is going to be a great year! I would like to share a little information about myself so you may get to know me.

As a former student of Gatesville ISD, I am delighted to be working in this wonderful school system where I teach with some of the very people who inspired me to become a teacher. In December of 2015, I graduated from Tarleton State University. After graduation, I accepted an aide position at Gatesville Primary in the Pre-K department. During this time, it became clear to me that the Primary was where I belonged and decided to begin my kindergarten journey.

I love the community of Gatesville and have lived here my whole life. I have four dogs, Mr. Harley, Davidson, Tank, and Jr., who I am sure your children will hear about several times throughout the year. I love the outdoors and being active, as well as photography and sports, especially the Texas Rangers.

I believe that the best thing we can do for your child is to work together as a team throughout the year. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  You may reach me via email at acolson@gatesvilleisd.org or you can call 254.865.7264 and leave a message.  I will contact you in a timely manner.

Thank you so much for trusting me with your child and allowing me to be part of their education. I am looking forward to the school year and cannot wait to get started!
