Melody started her teaching career as a classroom teacher (Kindergarten/2nd grade) in Northern Virginia, but couldn’t keep herself away from her roots in southeastern Pennsylvania. After 5 years in VA, she returned to the Philadelphia area as a 1st grade teacher with the School District of Haverford Township, until the COVID-19 Pandemic saw her shift roles into a fully virtual 2nd grade teacher, during her 4th year there. It was then that she discovered her passion for educational technology and, most importantly, for supporting her colleagues.

In an effort to pursue this passion and to expand her reach and support to as many teachers as possible, Melody then joined SMART Technologies as a Training Specialist. Now, through this position, she is embedded within the School District of Philadelphia as a technology coach who serves all teachers and students in the District.
