Hello Cardinal Families,
Welcome to another great year at Menchaca Early Childhood Center! I hope you had a restful and relaxing summer break, but most of all, I hope you enjoyed the blessing of unstructured time with family and friends. I am extremely proud to serve as your child’s principal, and I am looking forward to meeting everyone on the first day of school on August 13, 2019.
What an exciting time it is to be a part of Southside ISD! I am honored to write this letter as the Principal of Col. Miguel Menchaca Early Childhood Center. Thank you to Southside ISD for entrusting me to lead a campus where our youngest learners will begin their journey towards educational excellence and allowing me to be a part of this great community.
For the families that are new to Menchaca, I would like to share a little about myself. I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. My husband, Bobby and I moved our family to San Antonio in 2003. We have been married for almost twenty-eight years and have three wonderful children. Our son Danny is an officer with the San Antonio PD and the father to our little princess, Maddi! Our daughter Stephanie is pursuing her college degree at Northwest Vista College and expecting her first baby in November. Yes, another baby girl! Our son Erik attends high school in Northside ISD and is an active member of the marching band. Erik is an amazing trumpet player! My family has come a long way from our days in El Paso, and I am sure you will get the pleasure of meeting them soon. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with family, especially my grandbaby! I have dedicated eighteen years in the education field; working with students from early childhood through fifth grade; as well as mentoring college students who wish to become teachers and administrators.
To our returning families, we look forward to continuing the traditions we started last year. The traditions of great learning, strong character and academic excellence will continue! Your child will have lots of fun learning while at Menchaca! We look forward to seeing our returning students and seeing how much they have grown over the summer.
At Menchaca, we strongly believe that every child can learn and achieve the highest level of academic success with proper preparation, support, and guidance. Our entire staff is dedicated to building a safe, compassionate community of lifelong learners who are inspired to become respectful and responsible young citizens. With your continued support, we are committed to making our school even more successful than it is currently. As a parent or guardian, you are a critical component to making Menchaca Early Childhood Center successful and we thank YOU for your dedication to your children and to our school.
