Hello and welcome to 7th Grade Math! My name is Anna Mendoza and I am very excited to be your teacher this year. This is my 2nd year at Central and my 5th year teaching overall. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2011 with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education as well as a middle school endorsement in Mathematics.
This year, I hope to inspire my students and show them how cool math really is while at the same time challenging them to think outside the box and grow in their math skills.
In my free time, I like to watch cooking shows like Top Chef, Barefoot Contessa, Pioneer Woman, and Everyday Italian. To offset my love of food, I also work-out regularly with my favorite trainer… Jillian Michaels! Lastly, I like to attend games of my two favorite Chicago teams: the Blackhawks and the White Sox!
