Mrs. Heather Mendoza
MEET THE TEACHER
Greetings! My name is Heather Mendoza. I have taught at Dora M. Sauceda Middle School since 2014 and am very proud to be a Seminole! When I was a student, I had teachers that I admired and who inspired me to dream big. I want to be that light for my students!
I graduated from UTRGV (UTPA) and began my career in the business world. No matter how great it was, something was missing. I couldn’t ignore the feeling that I was meant to share my love of education with others. I have very fond memories of my middle school years. With many changes happening during these years, having someone who motivates us to learn during this time can make a big difference!
I teach English Language Arts (8h Grade and English I). Throughout my years at Donna ISD, I have written curriculum for middle school and high school, sponsored the cheerleading team, been a part of many committees, conducted trainings for my fellow colleagues, and held the position of ELA Department Chair. I am very honored to be a part of Sauceda MS!
Welcome, Mighty Seminole, to our school! This year will be filled with learning, experiences, and fun! We are glad you are here!
