Welcome to Kindergarten!
I am delighted to be your teacher this year at Lincoln Elementary. 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.
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. This is my seventh year teaching Kindergarten at Lincoln.
I live in Leesburg with my husband, daughter (12) and son (9). We love spending time together by hiking outdoors, playing tennis, and digging in our backyard garden.I look forward to learning and growing together this year in Kindergarten!Sincerely,Meghan Kilker Mendez
