About Melody


Bio

My name is Melody and since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be a teacher. During my preschool years, I loved writing on my Raggedy Ann and Andy chalkboard and pretending that I was teaching my dolls. I enjoyed school growing up and thought that being a teacher was the most important job in the world. Now I get to live my dream!

My name is Melody and since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be a teacher. During my preschool years, I loved writing on my Raggedy Ann and Andy chalkboard and pretending that I was teaching my dolls. I enjoyed school growing up and thought that being a teacher was the most important job in the world. Now I get to live my dream!

I am originally from Athens, TN and grew up in a home where my parents cared for foster children. Every summer from the time I can remember, I was either a summer camp counselor or a VBS teacher. From those experiences, I learned so much about kids, which enriched my passion even more.

Hiwassee College in Madisonville, TN was where I obtained my Associate of Science degree. Then I attended Tennessee Wesleyan College in Athens, TN where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Human Learning (K-8). I graduated, got married and moved to Knoxville. Shortly after my marriage, I attended the University of Tennessee and earned my Master of Science degree in Education.

My first teaching job was at Spring Hill Elementary here in Knoxville where I taught 1st grade. Then I transferred to Pond Gap Elementary where I taught 1st grade and Kindergarten. I was blessed with a son during this time so I took a couple of years off to spend quality time with him. When I returned to teaching, I transferred to Hardin Valley Elementary where I taught 2nd grade. During that time, I again became blessed with a daughter. I took a year off and then returned to teaching at Hardin Valley where I taught 3rd grade (my favorite) for 2 ½ years before moving to the greater Salt Lake valley area. I currently teach 1st grade at Ridgecrest Elementary in Cottonwood Heights.

Through my daily teaching experiences, workshops and in-services, I am constantly updated with the new Common Core curriculum as well as the assessments that are being required to pass to a new grade level. These challenges excite me and I am dedicated to help every child to be their very best!
