Hello! I’m Mrs. Melkerson. I live in Novelty with my husband and family. I have a daughter named Micaela, a son named Trey, five bonus-sons (Ryan, Kevin, Brendon, & Preston), and a bonus-daughter (Ashley, not pictured). I need an updated picture! Preston is now a senior in high school at West Geauga, four are in college, and two are on their own now. We also have two Aussiedoodle dogs, a cat, and a pond full of fish.
I began teaching in Mentor in 2000. I’ve primarily been in first grade, but have also taught kindergarten, second grade, and worked as a literacy specialist. My bachelor’s degree is in Christian Education and I worked in a private school before becoming a Cardinal! I have a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, an Education Specialist degree in Administration, a K-12 Reading Endorsement, and I am currently working on adding a Mild/Moderate Intervention Specialist Endorsement. I look forward to working with and learning more about your child and family this year!
