Melanie Morgan » Welcome!



I am SO excited about our new school year and the opportunity to share with you what is happening in our classroom and at our school.  On the tabs to the right you can find information about our class and what is going on at our school.  I am looking forward to working with you and your child this school year.  Parents, students, and teachers all working together is a powerful combination which contributes to academic achievement.  Let's make this a great year of learning!



I have been an elementary school teacher for 20 years!  I have taught both 2nd and 3rd grades.  I have been a 3rd grade teacher at La Vega Elementary School since 2012.  I love being a Pirate!  I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.  I attended Michigan State University and earned a bachelor's degree in Communications.  To warm up after all those cold winters up north, I went south and earned my master's degree in Public Administration at the University of Texas at Austin.  A life-long learner, I also certification in elementary and gifted education at Baylor University.  I am married and have four children.  We are a family of bears, frogs, and tigers because two of my children are Baylor graduates, one is attending Texas Christian University, and our fourth child attends Trinity University.   I also love dogs.  So in my spare time I enjoy fostering dogs for the Waco Humane Society.  I take in abandoned dogs and try to find loving homes for them.  Sometimes I become too attached and end up adopting the dogs myself.   I look forward to getting to know your child and helping them to be the best they can be!
