My name is Melanie Mills. This will be my second year working at Hand-in-Hand. Last year I started out ½ SLPA and ½ teaching, to full time teaching in February 2020. I was born and raised in California. I’ve lived in Washington for a year now. I have a B.S. degree in Speech Pathology and an M.S. degree in Special Education. I am currently participating in the alternative routes to certification program through City University of Seattle.
My husband is in the Navy. Right now it's just the two of us, but looking to add a dog to our family soon.
Can't wait to start this school year and meet everybody!
The paraeducators in our class will be Heather Hostler and Joy Paralle.
