Brief Biography: Mrs. Gamoneda has taught both kindergarten and first grade at PALCS. Before that, she taught for four years in various early childhood classrooms throughout Pennsylvania, developing hands-on lessons that build on children’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth. For a year and half, she also was a disabilities manager for a Head Start organization in northern New Jersey, where she coordinated services for students with special needs, communicated with parents on a daily basis, and collaboratively worked with other experts in the field to provide a quality educational experience for the children and the families they served.
Mrs. Gamoneda believes that “being a teacher at PALCS is exciting and challenging. I want to be able to use my experiences with early learning, along with my knowledge of differentiating instruction to create a positive learning environment for my students. I want my students to love learning as much as I do, while individually growing and succeeding. I am so excited to be a part of the PALCS community.”
