Mrs. Melissa Penwell

Welcome! My name is Melissa Penwell and I have been teaching for 23 years and most of my experience has been in Azle. I taught Kindergarten for 12 years, 2nd grade, and this will be my ninth year in 1st grade! I am a graduate of Tarleton State University.

I love animals of all kind! I have four dogs, a cat and a rabbit! During my free time I like to be with my family and we enjoy the outdoors by fishing, camping, snow skiing, and traveling to new places in the summer. I love the ocean!

I look forward to a great year with your child as we begin building what will be the foundation of all learning in the future!

Your Child's Teacher,
Melissa Penwell
