Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Melanie Mondragon and the 2020-2021 school year will be my 29th year in public education. I taught first grade during my first five years, and this year will be my 24th year to teach kindergarten. I taught at the same school in HEB ISD for 20 years before moving to Azle in 2019. I am proud to be a Hornet!
I have three beautiful children: Kaylee (25), Jacob (20), and Ty (9). Some of my hobbies include spending time with family, reading, gardening, traveling, and camping.
I think teaching kindergarten is the BEST job in the world. I love getting to watch my students' little minds at work. I consider getting to be in the classroom each day a huge blessing.
I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
