Mrs. Melissa Manderson
Hello! I will be your ACT Prep teacher this year which is listed on your schedule as enrichment. This course is part of your Driver's Education Class. When you are not driving you will be in 107A completeing projects as well as ACT Prep materials. I am looking forward to seeing all of you outperform yourselves when it comes to taking the ACT and scoring what is necessary to get into the college of your dreams and hopefully scholarships to help you along the way.
I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate of The University of Louisiana-Monroe, formerly NLU. I double majored in Spanish and French while working at ULM's child development center and teaching part time at Grace Episcopal School. I eventually moved to Grace full time.
In my younger years, I traveled each summer on scholarship. I was awarded the Sigma Delta Pi National Scholarship to study in Spain and the CODOFIL Scholarship awarded by the state of Louisiana to teachers of French. Additionally I traveled to Mexico and Switzerland. I grew up travelling with my family most of my formative years stopping in Iowa long enough for me to have a "normal" high school experience.
I have been married to my best friend since 2007 and we have two rambunctious boys, Beau eleven years old, and Cooper nine years old. Both boys attend West and can be seen racing to my door most afternoons.
