Hello and welcome to 4th grade! I am Mrs. Melinda Hagardorn and I will be your teacher for the 2017-2018 school year ALL SUBJECTS!!! I absolutely LOVE teaching 4th grade and can't wait to meet each and every one of you very soon.
A little about myself: As this new year begins, this will mark the beginning of my 19th year of teaching. All but two of these years have been teaching 4th grade. I have taught in Louisiana for 3 years, Virginia for 13 years, and Texas for 2 years.
I have been married to my wonderful husband, Frank, for 31 years! We have two beautiful daughters, Erica and Kayla, who still reside in Virginia with their families. Our grandchildren are Mackenzie (8), Cameron (4), Kennedy (almost 4), and Carson (2). They are the lights of our lives. We Facetime multiple times each and every day. This summer, Mackenzie, danced and competed at Walt Disney World in Orlando. Her studio did very well!! Not to forget our fur baby, Roux is our five year old Shih Tzu!
I enjoy being with my family the most, but when I am not with them I enjoy being with friends, relaxing by the pool, traveling as much as possible, eating out, and of course shopping! I love cruising and try to go at least once a year if possible.
Each and every school year I get very excited to greet each and every single student that I will get to know and love. We create a wonderful environment in our class in which respect, responsibility, and being a Quality Student are the key attributes to a successful year. I can't wait to start the new school year!
