    Just So You Know...It's Personal!

         Hello~my name is Melody Vann. I have been in education for the last 49 years...27 teaching.  I have been blessed to have taught every grade from Kindergarten to 12, finding my favorite place in third. This is my 5th year in 3rd grade.

         My husband, Leslie, a retired superintendent, and I have been married for 32 years. We have one son, Miles, who is married to Lyndsey. Both are graduates from Texas A & M, and teachers in Public Education.

         I am blessed to have been chosen to be a part of the Springtown Independent School District at the Reno Campus. I look forward to serving your children this year. If there is something I can do to help, please let me know.
