Hello My Name Is...

Mrs.  Melody Smith

Mrs. 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.
