Meet Billy Menz!

Hello.  I am Billy Menz and I have been a teacher for nearly 20 years in Texas, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota.  I have been with Minneapolis Public Schools for nine years as an elementary teacher and Math Specialist at Lyndale Community School.  My time in education has been challenging and rewarding and I am excited for the new challenge Heritage will provide.


In working with students in Minneapolis Public Schools, I have become passionate about EL education and ensuring that all of our students get the services they deserve.  I am new to the Middle School and High School levels, but as a teacher with a passion for math, the environment and biking I hope to share those passions with the Heritage community and ensure success for all our Hawks.


I will be at Heritage in the mornings this year and travel to Edison High School in the afternoons.  I will be supporting math classrooms at Heritage as I have worked as a math specialist for three years at Lyndale and incorporate student talk and justification into all of my math content.  Math and language are interconnected and provide a terrific opportunity for students to use the language of thinking and problem solving.


Please feel free to email me at or give me a call at 503-201-5550 if you you ever have any questions for me during the year.
