Meet the Librarian

My name is Olga M. Mendez and I am the proud library of Dr. Cash Elementary School. I was born and raised in Mexico and I am the oldest of four siblings and the only one living outside our country.
I am married to John B. Herton and I am the mother of Natalia (25) who is a visual artist and Francisco
(18) who attends to UT Austin (Pharmacy). My children are my motivation to be the best I can be every
day. I have a degree in Public Relations from the Universidad Autonoma de Tamaulipas and a Master’s in
Library Science from Sam Houston State University.
I have the certifications in EC-6, Bilingual Education, ESL and Dance. I have different interests: I like to read, constantly I am searching for new books to read and recommend to my patrons. Love to spend time in my house and trying to work in an herb garden. Ballet is another of my passions, I dance semi-professional and now I am a ballet teacher and perform in “The Nutcracker” ballet for the last 16 years.

Becoming a librarian has been one of the most satisfying things in my life. I am passionate to help students and teachers to find books and resources they are looking for, and for me it is exciting when my students are asking for what is new in the library and that they discover that the library is not only a place to hold books, but a place they can create, acquire
