Remembering our beloved Ms. Gedney

Ms. Gedney's family, students, colleagues, Montara parents and other members of the school community gathered on the morning of June 7, 2017 for a touching memorial and tribute to one of our school's finest teachers.  Ramona Gedney touched so many hearts and so many lives in her time here at Montara.  She was tremendously respected for her passion and dedication to her students as well as to the education profession.  She will be greatly missed here on campus, but she will live on in our hearts and in our community.
