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.
