“Clear is kind” is what guides the way Melanie leads, learns, and lives. Emphasizing clarity and shared purpose, she has earned the respect, admiration, and support of the Frost community. She’s an advocate for equity and inclusion with her impact reaching far beyond the walls of her school. She overhauled Frost’s PBIS framework, developed a comprehensive literacy intervention and progress monitoring action plan, and facilitated a shift in mindset and instructional practice toward concept-based learning within the school’s ELA department. On any given morning you might find Melanie greeting students with upbeat music and a huge smile or having a dance party and “dad joke” competition during lunch supervision in order to infuse fun and positive energy into everyone’s day.

Congratulations to the following Frost Middle School staff members who were also recognized at this year's FCPS Honors Ceremony!
