Mrs. Mentzel

     Welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Mrs. Mentzel, and I am so excited to welcome you to our class. I can't wait to share my love for Language Arts and Social Studies with you!  

     I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself, so that you have a chance to get to know me even before school begins. This will be my 9th year teaching at LMS. I have taught ALL of the core content subjects during my time here (Math, Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies). This year, I will be your teacher for Language Arts and Social Studies with the wonderful Mrs. Botero. In our classes we work hard, but we also love to enjoy learning and have fun! 

     I currently live in Hamilton, NJ. This is where I grew up for my entire life thus far! I live at home with my husband, our daughter Ella, our son Luka, and our two Miniature Australian Shepherds, Ozzie and Oakley. I have a sister who is my best friend, a nephew named AJ and a niece named Addy, who I absolutely adore. I enjoy going to the beach, dancing, listening to music, reading books, and spending my free time with family and friends. 

     It is my goal to provide you with a safe, happy, productive, and enjoyable classroom environment where we will all strive to do our best! Please reach out to me through email with any questions, concerns, or to simply say hi!
