Ms. Ofelia Mendez

Wow, this is my 33rd year as an educator!   What an honor to get to impact lives every day.  I taught Pre K, Kinder, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades.  I was an assistant principal for nine years and this year I am starting my 13th year as a principal.  The saying that says "Time flies when you are having fun." is exactly how I feel about what I get the privilege to do every day.  I get to play and learn with children and adults all day long every day.  I love what I do!  

At Maedgen Elementary, our mission is to build up every child from where they are to where they desire to go.  It is a team effort.  The children need to believe in themselves, the teacher already believes in them, you believe in them, and I believe in them.  Our goal is to empower all students to believe they can accomplish whatever they want to become and do.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your children.
