Melinda Parham

I am very excited to join the Serna family this year as the Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) coteacher!

A bit about myself, I love singing, reading, and enjoy spending time with my family (which includes an adorable fur-pup named Moose)! My favorite food is sushi and I love coffee and dark chocolate! 

I received my bachelor's degree from Fresno Pacific University in 2012 and my master’s degree from Point Loma Nazarene University in 2016.

My 13 year work history encompasses teaching students from preschool to the age of 22 in a varienty of roles: as an instructional aide, a behavioral aide and finally as a credentialed/certified Teacher.  

 I appreciate the opportunity to support ALL learners and am convinced that every child is capable of learning! I'm passionate about providing opportunities and supports, as needed, while students navigate through their educational experiences.
