Juliza Mejia


Juliza was born in Tamaulipas, Mexico and raised in Katy, Texas. Being involved in Best Buddies at Katy High School for two years helped her understand the meaning of special education and the positive impact you can create in a child's life.

Juliza is a current student at Lone Star Community College, pursuing her Associates of Arts in Teaching. After successfully completing her course work, she hopes to transfer to Texas State University and receive a B.A. in Psychology.

While at Lone Star, Juliza met Thyra DePascal, a professor in the Education Department. This professor encouraged Juliza to become a special education teacher with her heartwarming stories and knowledge.

Juliza is very excited to be a part of The Monarch School and is grateful for the opportunity to gain real-world knowledge of neurological differences and education as she continues her own formal education
