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.
