Mrs. Mena

Hi Camarena families!  My name is Mrs. Mena and I’m so fortunate to be part of our amazing school within a community full of fabulous families.  I’ve grown up in southern California my entire life and moved to San Diego when I went to the wonderful SDSU for my undergrad, teaching credential, and Masters degree (Go Aztecs!).  I am married to my supportive and tech-savvy husband, Vernon. We have a 4 1/2-year-old son named Camden, 3-year-old son named Anderson, a 6-month old daughter named Anella, a 6-year-old white lab named Troy, and 5-year-old Terrier mix named Rylee.  Being a parent has changed the way I look at life and I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to be a mom as well as a teacher to so many incredible students. Outside the classroom, I love being outdoors, trying new adventures, and spending time with my family.

I have been teaching for 13 years and taught K-5th grade over the time (with many combos in between).  I love teaching 5th grade here at Camarena especially with my amazing team. This year my Cam311 family will also be working closely with our Dual Immersion community of learners.  Maestra Flores and I will be team teaching across all subjects.  Together we will be ensuring all of our students get the best learning experience while keeping everyone informed along the way. We are so excited for our sixth year as Robo Griffins and are motivated to push the learning curve and develop questioners and thinkers among our classes.  I look forward to getting to know all of you and your families. Go Robo!
