Mrs. Melody Burge
My name is Melody Burge and I will be your child’s 1st grade teacher this year. I am excited for a great year together! We will laugh and learn together as we get your child ready for 2nd grade!
Here is a little about me- I graduated summa cum laude from UTSA with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I am certified for Preschool- 6th and I am also ESL (English as a Second Language) certified. I love teaching and I’m looking forward to the year ahead! My husband Shawn and I have been married for 17 wonderful years. We have a 17- year- old son named Nickolaus. He is in the 12th grade at Reagan High School. He is planning to attend UTSA or Incarente Word next year, so we are very excited for him!
In addition to being a wife, mother, and teacher, I’m also a Health and Wellness Coach with Beachbody. I love to help people reach their goals with the right workout and nutrition plan in the comfort of their home! My passion in life is helping others, whether it be in the classroom or with health and fitness!
As a parent, I know how important it is to feel comfortable with your child’s teacher. Therefore, I want us to work together to help your child have the best year possible! You know your child best, so if there’s anything that you think would be helpful, please let me know. I value your opinion and would love to hear it! If you ever have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me.
