3rd grade - Mendez, Belinda

Belinda Mendez

About Me:

I really enjoy teaching as a craft.  I find taking a standard, breaking it up into lessons, and differentiating for the needs of my students exciting.  I also pride myself in being patient and understanding.  My goal is for every child to feel loved and good about themselves.  It is my hope that I can give them the self-confidence they need to be successful in their school career.

I was born in San Mateo and moved here when I was 3 years old. I grew up in this neighborhood and went to Roy Cloud from K-4th grade. From here I went to Nativity in Menlo Park.  For high school, I started at Notre Dame in Belmont for 2 years and graduated from Woodside High School in 1990.  My family consists of my husband, Gabe, and my twins, Mario and Marisa. They are sophomores at Woodside, Class of 2024 🐯

In my spare time, I like to read and do jigsaw puzzles. I also enjoy traveling with my family and getting together with friends.  I have a slight obsession with YouTube.  Presently, I watch True Crime Stories and listen to music.
