About Mrs. Melendez
I am an Elementary Education major with my content area in English at Kansas State University College of Education. I am not your typical student. I am a military spouse with two children ages 8 and 4. I am considered an adult student, but I'm a kid at heart. I am a current member of Kansas National Education Association as a student. I love learning, and helping others learn (hence the major). Originally, I am from Southern California, where I graduated from Sultana High School. I moved to Kansas, per the military. My husband is a Staff Sergeant at Fort Riley. Yes, our two kids are army brats. Their hero is their daddy. We have lived in Kansas for 3 years now, and four years prior. I love Kansas because of it's beautiful scenery. On my off time, I love to be outside exploring, hiking, running, all kinds of things. I also do a little dabbling in Photography. Pictures mean the world to me because as a child I was in foster homes and then was adopted. Since my life was a bit different I have no pictures of me as a baby or a small child until age 5. That's a little back story into why I love photography. Also, my childhood is one reason why I'm going into teaching because I want to be that teacher for any student who may not have anyone else.
