University of Texas at Arlington

Bachelors of Fine Arts 2015


This is Mrs. Mentzel's 2nd year of teaching with Red Oak ISD.


     I grew up just down the road in Desoto, Texas. I graduated from Ferris High School in 2007 and from UT Arlington in 2015. Before teaching, I worked in a secretarial position at a psychiatrist office and counseling center for five years. In this position, I developed an awareness and an empathy for individuals and families who have ever had to struggle with tragedy, loss, mental illness, and/or addiction.

     Besides art and various other creative endeavors, I also have a passion for adventure. I strive to create a positive environment for my students to discover their spark, express themselves in a healthy manner, and to pursue a bright and fulfilling future. 

     I currently reside in Ovilla with my husband, a Dallas Firefighter. We are basset hound and goat people.
