My name is Melanie and I joined the CMS Instructional Technology Department in March 2016. Before joining the department, I was a Technology Facilitator for Ridge Road Middle School in Charlotte, NC in addition to being an Extended Employee in this department since 2012, a Middle Grades Mathematics teacher for 7 years (1 year at McCClintock Middle School), a Computer Support Specialist, and I am a proud veteran of the U.S. Army.
As an Extended Employee for the CMS Instructional Technology Department, I assisted in various Professional Learning sessions as an instructor and worked specifically with designing Atomic Learning Pathways for teachers to receive Technology Credits.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Hampton University (Go Pirates!), a Master of Art in Teaching from Kaplan University, a Microsoft Office Certification (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access) from Savannah Technical College, in addition to becoming a Google Certified Educator in July 2014 and will be renewing it in the Summer of 2016. In Fall 2015 I completed my Graduate Certificate in Instructional Systems Technology and Educational Leadership from UNC-Charlotte, and received my School Specialist Licensure (077 Licensure) in Spring 2016.
I love working with teachers, staff, and parents inside and outside of school on the best technology to use for their lifestyles. I am very knowledgeable about iOs, Windows, and Android devices.
