1st Grade Team Leader
Hi students and parents! My name is Isabel Cordonnier and I have been teaching at Mendenhall Elementary since 2008. I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science in Bilingual/ESL Education. I was born in Chile, South America and grew up in Norway, Europe before moving to the United States to study at UNT. I consider myself a global citizen and that is one of the many motivations for teaching, I want to help my students acquire 21st century skills and be lifelong learners so they can be successful wherever life might lead them. I live in Plano with my husband and my 2 children. I enjoy traveling, reading, exercising, and spending time with family and friends.
I am also currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Development from Lamar University and expect to graduate in 2022.
I am looking forward to a new and exciting school year!
