Ms. Melanie Alexander
My name is Melanie Alexander. I was born in Biloxi, MS, and I have lived on the Gulf Coast my entire life. I have 4 brothers and 5 sisters that also reside on the Gulf Coast. I have one son, Scott, a daughter-in-law, Tara, and 2 grandchildren, Brandon and Aubrey. I am a graduate of St. Martin High School, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, the University of Southern Mississippi, and William Carey University on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where I earned my associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees in elementary education.
During my spare time, I love to beach walk, fish, camp, swim, travel, read, cook on the grill, bake fattening desserts, and spend time with my huge family and 2 precious grandchildren. I also enjoy watching football, tennis, baseball, and soccer. I have been an avid Saints fan all of my life....whether they are winning or losing. While I love most anything edible, my favorite foods are Mexican Cuisine, steak and baked potatoes, seafood, all vegetables, and anything that contains chocolate and peanut butter.
Becoming a teacher has been my lifelong dream. As a child, I was very shy and fearful of learning new things. I had many teachers that inspired me to try hard and to do my best. I also had teachers that were not so sympathetic to the "anxious and struggling learners" in the classroom. I chose to be a teacher in hopes of providing my students with a safe and non-judgmental environment in which to learn.
