Miss Melanie Wilcox


This is my 15th year teaching, and I'm so excited to be at Meridian Elementary teaching 4th grade. I just moved to Idaho this summer and I'm thrilled to be here!

I am a bit of a technology nerd, so I am always looking for new ways to incorporate exciting technologies into the classroom to help create passionate learners. The summer of 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018 I attended the Google Apps for Education Summit, and I am also a Fellow of the Merit Program from Foothill College. I am excited to utilize these tools in the classroom, and in our brand new computer lab! Outside of the classroom I love working on projects at my house, spending time with family and friends, taking care of my two cats: Darcy and Kitten, going to the movies, reading on my iPad or Kindle, writing, and traveling. I love traveling. Last summer I spent a week in Barcelona, Spain with family, and then later spent two weeks discovering Japan. I'm looking forward to another great school year!
