Mrs. Melanie Edwards, 5th grade Language Arts/Social Studies
My name is Melanie Edwards and I am so excited to return to the Brave Nation for the 2020-2021 school year. I am teaching 5th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies at NeSmith Elementary. This year marks my 15th year teaching and 24th year in the education field. I have taught 5th grade, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th and was a director of an early learning school. I believe every child has the potential to grow in all areas each year. My goal is to offer a variety of opportunities that will help unlock each child's potential. I strive to challenge my students and make every day an adventure.
My family moved to Nevada seven years ago and enjoy the community. I have three children, our oldest attends Texas Tech, our middle child is a senior and our youngest will be a freshman at Community High School . I love animals and have 3 dogs, 7 cats, 2 horses, and 22 chickens. When I am not at school I love to ride my horses, spend time with my family, watch our kids play for the Braves, watching superhero movies, and read a variety of books.
My conference period is from 8:15- 9:10 Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday The best way to contact me is through email and I usually respond at the end of the teaching day.
