Learning is the only wealth tyrants cannot despoil. Only death can dim the lamp of knowledge that is within you. The true wealth of a nation lies not in its gold or silver but in its learning, wisdom, and in the uprightness of its sons and daughters.

-Khalil Gibran 

Ms. Gomes

Originally from a small farming community in the Central Valley I came down to Long Beach for college and a change of pace.  I graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a  B.A. in History and Minor in Sociology.  I continued at Cal State Long Beach and earned my Social Science Teaching Credential. I also hold a M.A. Degree in Education, Curriculum and Instruction.  I have been teaching at Jordan High School for 9 years.  I currently teach Modern World History and American Government and Economics in the JMAC (Jordan Media and Communication) program.  I also teach World History AP (Advanced Placement).  I enjoy running, sports, music and watching my San Francisco Giants.  I enjoy being involved on the Jordan Campus.  Along with Ms. Del Cid, I advise the J-Town Running Club,  I am also a part of the Best Buddies Club. 

 

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

Invictus by William Ernest Henley

We all die.

The goal isn't to live forever; the goal is to create something that will.

--Chuck Palahniuk
