Brief Biography: Having graduated from PALCS herself in 2006, Ms. DeGuzman began her teaching career at an urban charter high school in Reading, PA. But when given the opportunity to return to PALCS as a teacher, she knew she had to take it. Ms. DeGuzman loved PALCS as a student and loves it as a teacher too. Outside of school, she enjoys reading, writing, photography, and riding and showing horses.
Vision for PALCS: “I value how teaching at PALCS lets me focus on meeting individual student needs and developing strong curriculum. These two things are what I most love about teaching, and cyber education puts them at the forefront, especially a school like PALCS where teachers develop their own curriculum. Cyber education privileges learning for teachers and students. Do I miss signing bathroom and hall passes? No way!”
