Mr. Jason Mendence
Welcome to my webpage. My name is Jason Mendence. I am a 9th grade integrated studies teacher at Free State High School. I served in the military after high school from 1996 to 2001. After the military, I studied at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas. I graduated in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in Adaptive Special Education for grades K - 12. I also have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education grades K - 6. I had to get this in order to get my Special Education degree. I will never use this part of my degree.
I was born in Providence, Rhode Island and lived there for 19 years. After the military, I met my wife in Leavenworth, Kansas and decided to start a family there as well. My wife is Dixie Naylor and I have three children; Emily, Brady, and Patton. I currently reside in Leavenworth, Kansas with my family.
My hobbies include collecting baseball cards, constructing model trains and houses, and collecting vintage toys. I also have a Smurf collection that could weigh down a horse.
