Hi!

My name is Lauren Hanlon and this is my fourth year working at Pawtucketville.

Mrs. Mendonca

My name is Mrs. Lorna Mendonca.  I am working as a Special Education Teacher for grades K-2 this year.  I came to teach at PMES in 2000.  My children attended PMES, so I was active in the PTO for many years.  I have been teaching in Lowell Public Schools since 1988.  
I live with my husband, Mr. Mendonca, my dog, Dixie, and my cat, CiCi.  I also have 3 grandchildren.  Two are students here at PMES, and one attends the Wang School.
My favorite things to teach are Reading and Social Studies.  It is super groovy to watch children develop their Literacy Skills.  Social Studies helps us learn about cool events and people in our world, past and present.  
When I am not teaching, my favorite thing to do is cook, watch cooking shows, eat, watch Columbo reruns, and hang out with my grandchildren.
