Mrs. Josefina Polendo

This is my first year at Olympia Elementary working in Special Education for 2nd and 3rd grade. I’m really excited to be working with your child this year! I’ve been working in education for over ten years, mostly teaching Pre-K or working in Special Education. I also taught all subjects for 2nd grade for one school year. I was born and raised in San Antonio. I went away for a while for college and came back. I hold a Bachelor’s in English and ESL Education and started my Master’s in Bicultural Bilingual Education but have to put it on pause for now. I have certifications in EC-6 General Education, EC-12 Special Education, TESOL and HighScope.

I’m a busy mom with three wonderful and active children. I enjoy doing science experiments and cooking with them on the weekend. We love visiting anything dinosaur related within a driving distance. I love being a “brain architect” and working with young children and I can’t wait to guide your child in building lifelong skills needed to be successful.

If you need anything or have questions, please reach out.
