  I am the Title 1 School Improvement Specialist, here at Mendoza.  My role as the Title 1 Specialist is to help manage the Title 1 federal money that our school receives to assist students who need extra help with their academics, and to assist teachers with their instructional methods and materials.  

I have been a part of the Mesa family for many years teaching at Washington and Taft, and as the Media Specialist at Madison.  Sharing and discussing books with kids is my passion.

I am an Arizona native growing up in Tucson, and therefore, received a Bachelors degree in education from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!) and a Masters from Northern Arizona University. 

Some of my favorite things to do are to read, solve jigsaw puzzles, play board games, garden and travel.
