5th Grade Language Arts and Reading Teacher
Hi! My name is Mrs. Melissa Dreher. I am so excited to be at Vaughan! I graduated with a degree in communication from Henderson State University in 2006 and earned my teaching certification from Texas A&M University-Commerce. In December 2015 I will graduate with my Masters degree in School Counseling. This is my 9th year teaching but my 1st year in Allen at Vaughan Elementary. I previously taught four years of high school speech & debate, followed by four years of fifth grade writing & social studies. This year I'll be teaching reading & writing to Vaughan's fifth graders!
My husband, Jarred, and I have been together for almost 11 years and married for 8. Our son,Weston, just turned four! We are big razorback fans and are also very active in our church, First Baptist Allen.
My absolute favorite thing to do is READ! If you love to read or want your child to have a love for reading, the best thing you can do is have plenty of books for them to choose from. The best and easiest way to make this happen is simply purchasing books through Scholastic. You can order online at any time and those books will ship to our school. The best part of ordering online through Scholastic is that the money doesn't have to be sent to the school...you pay online. Your child will receive his or her book along with the rest of the books that come to our classroom. The orders you place help me to earn points. Those points are used throughout the year to order books for our classroom library! Go here to order:
