Mrs. Melinda (Mindy) Waters

Welcome to Tejeda Middle School! I teach 6th grade English: Level and Honors. I am returning to the classroom this year after taking time off to raise my kids and be an active volunteer in our district and community.

I graduated from Texas A&M University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in English. I also earned my Master of Secondary Education from University of Arkansas-Fayetteville in 2002. I have taught 9-12th English/Pre-AP English and 7th & 8th GT in Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD, Alma ISD, and Pulaski County Special School District. My husband and I have two children who attended Tejeda and now attend Johnson High School. Go JAGS and TIMBERWOLVES! 

This year is going to be full of challenges and new learning opportunities. We are all in this together, and I am here to help you make your mark at Tejeda and ensure you have a successful 6th grade year!
