She is originally from Paraguay, South America and speaks five languages. She enjoys wakeboarding, cross fit, and spending time with her family. She brings brilliance to our students and faculty as she delivers effective lessons on developing empathy, defining wise and unwise decision-making, and establishing the difference between tattling and telling. She demonstrates for all of the staff and student body a very well-defined work ethic! Mercedes is known to say, “You have to work hard to play hard”, and the students love to work as well as play!
