Mrs. Mendy Giapapas
Hello, my name is Mendy Giapapas! I teach English 10 Concepts at Great Oak High School and I also push into an English 10 general education class. I am beginning my 6th year as a RSP Teacher and Case Carrier. Previously, I was an Instructional Assistant in the general education setting for 5 years at GOHS before I became a teacher. I am the dually tagged Case Carrier for students on an IEP and who are English Learners (EL) as well. I am also an Admin Designee, overseeing IEP meetings. I previously coached girls soccer for two years at GOHS.
My husband Chris and I have been married for almost 32 years and we have 3 children, two boys, Theo and Lars, who are grown and our daughter, Seanna, who is a senior in high school. Our family is our life:) We love to laugh, eat, boat, fish, golf, play volleyball, soccer and are huge sports fans. We have a 13 year old dog, Rizzo, a 1 year old cat, KiKi-Mo and a 6 month old cattle dog, Bindi.
I love what I do! I feel lucky that I am able to serve daily at GOHS...it gives me a sense of great purpose, of giving, and helping others:)
