My name is Noel Mercado and it is my pleasure to serve our students and ensure your child has great educational outcomes. This will be my 17th year in education and have been granted the opportunity of working in a variety of educational settings. I started my educational career as a Teacher Assistant at a residential treatment facility & eventually became a Math interventionist & Special Education teacher. This proceeded with an opportunity to lead the Special Education Department at Sierra High School & run the Affective Needs program. As a result, this created a stepping stone to work in conjunction with Third Future Schools. There are three things that drive my educational passion. 1. I’m here to serve your children. 2. I’m passionate about empowering our students and having them discover their potential. 3. I believe that we must work together to maximize student outcomes.
