Ms. Melanie & Ms. Tracy's Pre-K Class

Hello My Name is:
Melanie Presser ( Ms. Melanie)

Prek rocks

I began teaching at Pope County Pre-K in January of 1986. I am very fortunate to  have the same aide for almost 30 years, Mrs. Tracy Walter ( Ms. Tracy).

 Before Pre-K I taught two years  (1974-76) in Hardin Co. as cooperating teacher with grades 1-4. I left teaching for 10 years in 1976 after the birth of our first baby to be a stay at home mommy. 

I live in Dixon Springs with my husband, Curt, five cats and one dog. We have been blessed with three children, Amber, Aaron and Allison. We have also been blessed with six grandchildren, Shain, Kennadie, Austin, Landon, Masin and Owin.

 I have taught close to 600 children over the years and have seen education change in many ways. I am very happy to say I love my job as much today as I did the day I started.
