Melanie Hehl

8th Grade English


Welcome to Our Class!

I am Mrs. Melanie Hehl (pronounced hail), and I am pleased to return to DC Middle School as an ELA teacher! This is my second year teaching after my previous career as a soldier. Our classroom will incorporate learning literature and grammar with dignity, respect, values, and the occasional fun! Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! 





About the Teacher

Education and Experience:

 I am a retired U.S. Army veteran; after serving 20 years, I became a teacher! I hold a Bachelors of Arts in English from University of Maryland and a Masters of Arts in Teaching - Secondary Education from Liberty University. Having traveled for many years, I love to share pictures and cultural experiences from the various places I've seen. My lessons will often refer to these travels so that my students get a visual of what they are learning. 





Personal Info: I am married with an adult son, a fur-baby, 12 chickens, and 11 goats. We all live together in chaotic harmony on a mini farm. I love to bake, and will occasionally surprise my students with a sweet treat!
