Melanie Harris is a 7th grade math instructor.  She recently completed her doctorate in curriculum, teaching, and teacher education and has been teaching in Alachua County Schools for more than 31 years.  She loves to teach children how to learn through music, dance, and drama and enjoys being with her family, singing, gardening and playing with her Morkie (maltese/yorkie), Huck. Her favorite television shows are Criminal Minds and NCIS. She listens to all kinds of music, but jazz calms her soul.

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”  —Unknown
