Hello! I’m Mrs. Melkerson. I live in Novelty with my husband and family. I have a daughter named Micaela, a son named Trey, four bonus-sons (Ryan, Kevin, Brendon, & Preston), and a bonus-daughter (Ashley, not pictured). I need an updated picture! 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. First grade is my true love… there’s nothing better than helping a child become a fluent reader! My bachelor’s degree is in Christian Education and I worked in a private school before becoming a Cardinal! I earned a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and an Education Specialist degree in Administration at Cleveland State University. In addition to a PK-3 teaching license, I also have a Mild/Moderate Intervention Specialist license and a K-12 Reading Endorsement. I look forward to learning more about your child and family this year and partnering with you to help them reach their potential!
