Maria Melendez

Family & Community Engagement Coordinator

As the TAG Family and Community Coordinator my mission is to develop goal-oriented relationships between teachers, administrators and families that are mutual, culturally responsive, and that supports the best interest for the students and families both individually and collectively. I strive to promote and encourage deepened community spirit, and enriching educational, social, and developmental experiences as teachers and families share responsibility as true partners for student learning.
