Mrs. Kimberly Mendez

This is my fifth year at Garner MS, and 7th year teaching.  I earned my Bachelor of Music in Music Studies Degree, Vocal Emphasis, from Texas State University in 2014.  I am a product of NEISD (Wilshire ES, Krueger MS, Roosevelt HS). I joined choir as a 6th grader and my musical journey never stopped. In non-pandemic times, I continue to perform as a member of the San Antonio Symphony Mastersingers.

Choirs under my direction have consistently earned Superior Sweepstakes ratings at UIL Concert & Sight Reading Contest, Superior ratings at Solo & Ensemble Contest, and chairs in the Region XII Choirs. Choirs have also received Superior and Best in Class ratings at ZDT's Kidz 'n the Park Festival, Bluebonnet Classic Festival and Schlitterbahn's Sound Waves Festival.

This will be a year of great flexibility, and I appreciate your patience as information changes daily. Although we will be learning remotely, I want to assure you that your child will continue to receive the top-notch choral education that Garner MS music programs have always cultivated. 

As safety guidance and district policies evolve, I will communicate changes in regards to choir and AIM through Google Classroom, email, and my teacher website.

Your child’s health and wellbeing will be the priority. I look forward to the quality, meaningful, musical and academic experiences we will have this year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me regarding any questions or concerns. I am here to help!
