    My name is Melissa Herzog and this will be my 21st year to teach.  I also taught first and third grade in Farmers Branch prior to making Allen my home.  I love teaching at Chandler and I am so excited about having the opportunity to spend this year working with you and your child.


    I am a graduate of Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a specialization in early childhood and an emphasis in reading.  I have certifications in gifted and talented education and English as a second language. I grew up in Houston with my parents and one older brother. 


    My husband, Stuart, and I have been married just over sixteen years and have a daughter Amelia, who is ten and attending fifth grade at Chandler and my son, Everett is 5 and attending Kindergarten here.  I enjoy shopping, reading, watching movies, crafting and spending time with friends and family.


    This year in first grade we will learn how exciting it is to read, catch math fever, complete science experiments, explore our world, develop computer skills and also learn through songs, chants and rhymes.  We will also learn to work together to achieve goals, share with others, and respect everyone’s thoughts and words.


    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns this year.

    I’m looking forward to a great year!
