Welcome to Kindergarten!
My name is Mrs. Mendez and I am delighted to be your teacher this year at Lincoln Elementary. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education, I taught First Grade for six years at Olney Elementary School in Montgomery County, Maryland. While teaching, I also earned my Master of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University. Additionally, I am a licensed Reading Specialist in Virginia.
My goal as a teacher is to provide high quality instruction to meet the unique needs of each child, create a safe and engaging learning environment, and inspire students to be kind and persistent in achieving their goals through my own example.
I live in Leesburg with my husband, daughter and son. We love spending time together by hiking outdoors, playing tennis, and digging in our backyard garden.-Meghan Kilker Mendez
