Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Mary Mendoza. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Central Michigan University in 1995, and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Oakland University (2001). I have been working within Ann Arbor Public Schools for 21 years. This is my third year teaching at Lawton. I am very excited to be teaching Young Fives again this year. This is such a fun age to work with. I love working with these children everyday!
My favorite book is "The Kissing Hand". I enjoyed reading that book to my children when they were little the night before their first day of school. This way they knew I was with them all day long.
My favorite subject when I was in elementary school was math because I love work with numbers.
