Ms. Mendez Retires
It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to Elsie Mendez. She gave decades of her life to the children of Bushwick, working at multiple schools in various positions. For over 10 years she has been part of our family at P.S. 106. As a teacher, she was creative, loving and passionate about her craft. As a colleague, she was supportive, funny and inspiring. Ms. Mendez consistently went above and beyond, directing various plays and performances throughout the years in addition to her top notch instruction in the classroom. Late this year she announced she'd be retiring. She will be sorely missed by our entire school community. However, she is ready to start a new chapter in her life. We extend our gratitude to her and wish her well. During the morning of her last day, her students made her a little something to remember them by. Congratulations Elsie. We love you. We thank you. Enjoy your retirement!
