The Gomez Family

The Gomez Family

A legacy of success.

The Gomez family boasts many proud alumni of Pittsburgh Public Schools. Mom Merceda graduated from Schenley. Her parents were both PPS alumni, as are her two oldest children, Kayla and Tony. Her daughter Aleisia currently attends Pittsburgh Allderdice while the youngest, Karlito, is waiting his turn. Ms. Gomez serves  as a Literary Academic Coach at Pittsburgh Allegheny PreK-5, Allegheny 6-8, and Pittsburgh King PreK-8, and as the FACE coordinator at Pittsburgh Allegheny 6-8. She understands the value of parent engagement. “PPS means quality education,” says Gomez. “But the schools can’t do it alone. As parents, we need to keep the lines of communications open and build relationships with teachers. Playing an active role in your child’s education is critical to his or her success.”
