Hello! I am Mrs. Mellott and I am absolutely thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher this year. We are going to learn so much this year, while filling the classroom with fun, love, and laughter. I am looking forward to getting to know your child and your family this school year.
A little about me… I am married to my amazing husband of 18+ years and we live in Gilbert with our 3 kids (16, 14, & 11), our yellow lab, and our sweet cat. While Arizona has been my home for 23 years, I grew up in Minnesota. My bachelors degree is from Grand Canyon University and my teaching certificate from Rio Salado College. This will be my third year teaching first grade at Coronado Elementary. All 3 of my children attended Coronado, so I am familiar with and love this school and culture.
My goal in the classroom is to share with my students a love of learning that will continue for each of them into their futures. Communication is key, so please know that I will be communicating as often as possible and welcome each of you to communicate with me whenever you feel like you need to. I am very excited to start this school year and look forward to getting to know all of you!
