“It’s just the right time for me” she said.
Mrs. Gomez currently teaches AP Language and 11th grade academic and honors English, and will be retiring at the end of the year. This retirement is bittersweet for Mrs. Gomez because she loves the atmosphere of her classroom and most especially her students, who also love her back.
After first working for Springhouse Publishing company as an Associate Editor, Gomez decided to follow her dream and become a teacher. As a child, she originally wanted to be a Kindergarten teacher, but as her love for writing and literature grew strong, she knew that sharing her love for English with high school students was the path she had to follow.
Mrs. Gomez first started at New Hope-Solebury High School in 1995. Prior to arriving, she had taught at BCCC and Delaware Valley College (today’s Delaware Valley University). Gomez taught American Literature to 9th grade students and British Literature to 11th grade students, creating 20 years of memories, laughs, and incredible classroom experiences.
Mrs. Gomez will miss “the students, the classroom, and teaching writing,” she said as a smile broke across her face.
New Hope will surely miss such a friendly face and impactful teacher.
