Degrees and Certifications:

Ana Gabriela Mendoza

Welcome to my page! I was born and raised in Mexico City and moved to San Antonio with my family at the age of 14. I am the proud parent of two amazing boys, who are eleven years apart, and a dog that's like another member of the family. My professional path took me through different fields before finding my true calling and pursuing a career in education in 2005. I was a Bilingual and Dual Language Teacher for seven years before transitioning to the Family Specialist position at East Terrell Hills. I have been with NEISD for 15 years and this school year will be my 10th year at ETH. Year after year I feel honored to get to work with our amazing faculty, families and community members! I look forward to meeting you and working together to support our future leaders...It does take a village to raise our children. Let's make it a successful 2021-2022 school year!

¡Bienvenidos a mi página! Nací y crecí en la Ciudad de México y me vine a vivir a San Antonio con mi familia a los 14 años. Soy la madre orgullosa de dos hombrecitos magníficos que se llevan once años y de un perro, que es como otro miembro de la familia. Mi jornada profesional me llevo por diferentes caminos hasta encontrar mi verdadera vocación y empezar una carrera en educación en el 2005. Fui maestra bilingüe y dual por siete años antes de hacer la transición al puesto de Especialista de familias en East Terrell Hills. He estado en el distrito NEISD por 15 años y este será mi décimo año en ETH. ¡Año tras año me siento muy afortunada de poder trabajar con nuestra facultad, familias y comunidad tan maravillosa! Espero poder conocerlos y trabajar mano a mano para apoyar a nuestros líderes del futuro... En realidad si toma un pueblo entero para educar a nuestros hijos. ¡Hagamos de este 2021-2022 un año muy exitoso!
