I'm Araceli Mendez, your new co-administrator, alongside Ms. Natalia Macias. With 13 years of experience in education, including teaching, coaching, and mathematics coordination, I'm excited to join Prunedale from Elkhorn Elementary.

In the coming weeks, I'll be transitioning to Prunedale to ensure a smooth changeover. Our goal is to collaborate with students, families, and staff to provide equitable learning opportunities. With a background in both elementary and secondary administration and as a former high school teacher, I'm well-prepared to guide students toward a successful future.

I'm bilingual, with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from UC Santa Cruz and a teaching credential from CSUMB. My family and I have been part of the Royal Oaks/Las Lomas community for the past eight years.

I look forward to getting to know you all better. Feel free to contact me or Ms. Macias via email for any questions or input.
