WHAT WORKS IN EDUCATION The George Lucas Educational Foundation

Melanie Leija

Hello Everyone! I am a new teacher here in beautiful San Antonio, TX. I teach English I, II, and IV at a school that specializes in working with students who have fell at least a year behind in their education. For many of my students, they have fell behind because of poor choices, unexpected pregnancy, or family issues that arose. Whatever the reason may be, my students come to our school in order to complete their work and move on toward furthering their education.
Outside of school I am happily married and enjoy spending times with my wonderful husband and 3 terrifically terrible puppies.
