Isabella Mendez joins the Primary School faculty as the Spanish Specialist. Izzy is a 2020 graduate of Providence College and an MKA alum who has been a part of the community since her Pre-K year at the Primary School. Since high school, Izzy has worked at MKA’s JR Star Camp and is now in her second year as head counselor of a class. She coaches MKA Upper School student-athletes in field hockey, basketball, and softball at the varsity level. In 2020 Izzy became an integral member of the Primary School community, working as a recess aide, substitute teacher for Spanish classes, a long-term substitute in Physical Education classes, and a frequent participant in professional development workshops. Last spring, Izzy worked closely with Maestro Rincón and Anne-Sophie, World Language Chair, on learning the curriculum and best practices for creating an environment where students feel comfortable, confident, and ready to learn Spanish. She is eager to be in the classroom teaching new and returning students the Spanish language and culture, which holds a significant part of her identity. In Izzy’s free time, she enjoys doing CrossFit, listening to music, and spending time with loved ones.
