Go Rattlers!  I love Mendez!

I am the Dyslexia Reading Specialist for Mendez Elementary.  I am also our campus reading specialist, and I enjoy working closely with our teachers to help our students.  Readers Become Leaders! 

This is my 24th year in our district.  I am honored to say that I was selected as Teacher of the Year for Mendez Elementary for 2012-2013.  I am also very proud to state that I have been recognized by the San Marcos Lions Club as Teacher of the Month for January 2012 and January 2016.  These accomplishments serve as examples of my commitment to the students of our district.

  • Planning/conference time:  12:30-1:20

    Preferred method of contact is either by email or classroom phone.  I am available to answer questions regarding dyslexia, evaluating for dyslexia, and/or questions regarding the reading process.
