Hello, I am Mrs. Meneses!

I am a native Texan and come from a long line of educators. Despite wanting to be a teacher from a young age, I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Business Administration. I became a military spouse in 2006 and completed a Master of Arts in Managerial Economics. After five years in the corporate world, I transitioned into adult and higher education where I confirmed education as a calling. After having my two children (a Kallison graduate/6th grader at Straus and a 3rd grader here at Kallison) and being involved in their education, I knew that the classroom was home. I completed alternative certification through Region 20 in the following areas: Core Subjects Grades 4-8, Special Education Early Childhood-Grade 12, and English as a Second Language. 

I am thrilled to help your student and serve the Kallison Stampede community!
