Mercedes works with wacky 7th graders at Ingrid B. Lacy Middle School in Pacifica. She has taught middle school Language Arts for 14 years in both Los Angeles and the Bay Area; she uses her classroom to practice her one woman comedy show (her students are not amused). Her classroom is a place for fun and she loves her students. She has written curriculum for her school district and has served as a mentor for aspiring teachers. In her spare time, Mercedes practices yoga and cuddles with her cat, Dustin. This is her first year working as a Site Administrator for Adventures In Writing and she is really excited!
