Mercedes Muñoz, Franklin High educator, named Oregon teacher of the year for 2020

Mercedes Muñoz was just a few credits shy of graduating from Portland’s Benson High School when she dropped out. She was one of those kids, she said, who needed a bit of a nudge.

Muñoz went back to school and eventually enrolled at Portland State University. She graduated in 2013 with a degree in English and a minor in special education. That same year, Muñoz started working at Franklin High School.
