Hello My Name Is...
Mrs. Melody Smith
I am so excited to be your child’s kindergarten teacher! I am looking forward to a great year.
I was born and raised in North Carolina. I have lived in El Paso, TX for the last 23 years. I love to call El Paso my home. I have three children (2 daughters and one son) who are all former Polk Panthers. I have been involved as a parent or volunteer at Polk for the last thirteen years. We have a 2 year old German Shepherd named Schatzi. When I am not at school, I enjoy gardening, and watching movies with my family.
Before joining Polk, I worked for 4 years at a local preschool where I was the preschool and kindergarten reading and computer lab teacher. I taught third grade last year and am excited to be back in kindergarten.
I graduated from UTEP with a Bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education. My certification is Early Childhood through 6th grade. I am also certified in English as a Second Language.
