Hello! My name is Mrs. Mendoza and this will be my third year teaching at Jahn. I grew up and currently live on the southwest side of Chicago in McKinley Park. I’m currently in the process of purchasing my first home with my husband Chris. Fingers crossed! I received both my Bachelor's and Master’s degree from the University of Chicago. I love to learn and am constantly attending workshops and taking new classes. I will be taking my final course this Fall to be certified to teach Algebra for middle school. A few fun facts about myself: I’m the youngest of four children, I have 8 nieces and nephews, and I love to use my blender to freezer cook! I spent my summer training for the Chicago Marathon and will be running 26.2 miles in October. I’m so excited to be teaching math again this year and I’m looking forward to building stronger relationships with students and parents this year. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns! My goal is to make each child feel confident and successful in their math abilities this year. I look forward to a fabulous school year!
