DANIELLE CARANZA - SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER
Starting out, teaching was not on my to-do list- but rather becoming an American Sign Language interpreter in the educational setting. After earning my Deaf Studies certificate from Phoenix College, I decided then to enroll at Arizona State University to earn my BA in Special Education. This is now my ninth year teaching. I’ve taught in the Deer Valley and Peoria school districts from grades kinder to eighth grade, as well as being the Read180 teacher. Before joining IES, I was the co-director at a private behavioral school where I learned to wear many hats and balance them all. While I loved my position there, I dearly missed being in the classroom full time. I now teach grades kinder to 12th special education. I believe each student should be taught to their strengths in order to build their weaknesses with the ultimate goal of independence.
For the future, I bounce from idea to idea, however, I have narrowed down to either earning a master’s in leadership or doctorate in audiology.
Outside of work, my guilty pleasures include watching the early 2000’s reality shows, baking, and shopping not only for shoes but for outfits for my dogs and cats.

ANABELLE MENDOZa - SPEECH lANGUAGE pATHOLOGY aSSISTANT
Anabelle graduated with a BS in Speech Pathology at the University of the Philippines. The course was very new to the country then so there were no real jobs for SLP’s at that time. She ended up working as a Department Manager at the biggest department chain in the Philippines.
Feeling restless as usual, Anabelle made the move to CA where she worked as a Certified Medical Assistant for a few years. CA is where she met her husband and had 2 boys who have kept her very busy until the present. Her husband’s job then moved them to AZ where she was able to get back to Speech Pathology and come across IES.
Anabelle is happy to join the IES team. She enjoys working with elementary school children and finds gratitude with the smallest progress achieved by each child from speech therapy. Anabelle enjoys the theatre, film, traveling, and keeping in touch with friends and family. “Life is what you make of it.”
