Mrs. Melissa Hendrix

Hello! I am Mrs. Melissa Hendrix. This will be my 9th year of teaching! I have a Master's Degree in Special Education from Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis. I taught Kindergarten for 4 years in Waynesville, and I taught K-6 Special Education for 3 years before that in another district. I have an amazing daughter that just turned 18 months old and a wonderful husband. We take foster children sometimes so my family is larger at times. I am from Washington, MO originally which is in the St. Louis area. I love children, the St. Louis Cardinals and I also enjoy couponing and Christmas!

 My goal as your child's teacher is to have high expectations for them to challenge them each day without frustrating them. I truly believe that high expectations are a key component to student acheievement. 

I love parent-teacher communication so please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns at all. I truly want your child to be successful and I want you to know that I will do whatever it takes to help them reach thier goals!

 I am looking forward to being your child's teacher! It's going to be a great year! Go Tigers!
