Middle School Principal

Tracy Mendez

I completed my Associate of Arts degree from RSC in 1996, my Bachelor of Science degree in Education from NSU in 1998, and my Masters of Science in Educational Leadership from PSU in 2012. I taught at Ewing Halsell Middle School for 15 years and was selected as the VPS 2007 Teacher of the Year. In 2013 I started teaching middle school language arts and working as the middle school principal for Bluejacket. That same year I was selected as the BPS Teacher of the year. I have known since 3rd grade that I wanted to work with children and be a teacher. I truly love what I do and enjoy coming to school every day! I have been teaching for 23 years.

My husband and I live in the Bluejacket School District and both of my sons graduated from Bluejacket High School!
