Welcome to Mrs. Gouge's Computer Cabin in the West Pelzer Wilderness!
West Pelzer Elementary is "home away from home" for so many...your incredible child is part of an amazing school.
We are the Palomino family!
I am honored to be a part of your child's educational growth.
This is my first "official" year at WPES and I could not be more excited!
I am an East Tennessee native who has planted deep roots in South Carolina.
My husband and I celebrate twenty years together and are the proud parents of Colt and Kara.
We enjoy spending our time together and traveling to the mountains as often as possible.
"Family is not an important thing. It's everything." -Michael J. Fox
I will strive to provide an engaging atmosphere while recognizing each student individually and will always welcome your child into my classroom with joy and compassion.
"Technology gives the quietest student a voice."
This year, in addition to discovering how technology contributes to our daily lives, students will develop and improve their computer and keyboarding skills.
We will discuss the importance of online safety, recognize cyberbullying, and learn how to take action with the help of an adult.
Students will gain the necessary knowledge of how to be good digital citizens.
Our society is emersed in technology and every day we are achieving new advances. My goal is to help your child become "tech smart" while having fun.
"Man is still the most extraordinary computer of all." -John F. Kennedy
