Mrs. Melody Burchfield
Hello, my name is Melody Burchfield! I am a fourth grade teacher here at Mallory Elementary. I grew up in Marshfield, MO and currently reside in Conway, MO. I married my high school sweetheart in April of 2016. We have four fur babies - two cats and two dogs - but no human children, yet. I come from a large, combined family where I am the fourth of six children and the aunt to nine beautiful nieces and nephews ranging from 1 year old to 11 years old.
I studied at OTC before transferring to Missouri State University where I completed my elementary education degree. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree with a literacy education focus. Prior to joining the Mallory team, I was a personal paraprofessional at Fordland Elementary. I look forward to helping our fourth graders develop a love of reading and writing as an ELA teacher. I find relationships to be key in education. I would love to get to know our families so that we can work together to see your students succeed in all aspects of life. Words can't explain how excited I am to be at Mallory Elementary. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you
