Dominique Mendoza
Education Leadership Coach, National Network of SEL Change Agents

We’re excited to welcome Dominique back to Teach Plus to support teacher leaders in managing and implementing their change projects. She leads through a lens of equity, has a decade of experience in teacher leadership and instruction, and specializes in building capacity in others through individualized coaching. A founding member of the Teach Plus Texas Coaching Team, supporting our Harmony Public Schools partnership in 2017-2018, she left to complete a year-long trip across Europe and Asia with her husband. Upon her return, Dominique served as a Program Manager for The Denver Math Fellows, where she coached and developed a team across three school sites to implement equity driven instructional practices for all students. She began her career in education as a teacher in Memphis City Schools and transitioned into teacher leadership with Denver Public Schools. 

Dominique holds a BA in Psychology from Belmont Abbey College, a M. Ed. from Christian Brothers University, and is certified in Cognitive Coaching. In her spare time, Dominique enjoys curling up in a blanket to read a good book, playing board games with friends, practicing calligraphy, and traveling abroad.
