Ms. Mendez

Ms. Mendez, why do you love teaching?

I love teaching because it is a very rewarding occupation. I love pushing students out of their comfort zones, and getting them to believe in themselves. It is rewarding seeing a student who "hates" math change their mind, and begin to appreciate it.

How do you create a welcoming environment for all? 

I create a welcoming environment for all by allowing everyone to have a voice in my classroom. No idea is "too dumb" and no mistakes are "stupid" because mistakes are part of the learning process.


How will you communicate and be accessible to your students and parents?

I will be comminicating with students and parents via email, Remind, and Google Classroom.

What do you like to do? What inspires you?

I like to watch movies with my family, go hiking, and completing escape rooms. I am inpsired by those around me who care about others, who are kind, and people who aren't afraid to stand up for what they believe in.
