Welcome to 4th Grade!


My name is Melanie Jackson. This will be my 20th year of teaching.  This is my 4th year at Leeds and so far,  I love it.  Prior to teaching  at Leeds, I taught kindergarten in Georgia for five years.  I also taught in Anniston, Alabama for ten years.  While in Anniston, I was a Reading Coach,  I taught 1st grade and I taught 3rd grade.  My other experience includes teaching undergraduate classes at Jacksonville State University, online course facilitator for eLearning Alabama and Alabama Reading Initiative Trainer for new teachers.  I guess you could say I have a wide range of experience, but little kids are my favorite.  They make each day interesting and there is never a dull moment.  


Thanks for taking the time to learn about me.  I am looking forward to a great year at Leeds Elementary.
