Mrs. Melanie Bradberry
I began my career in 1992 teaching middle school math and science. Along the journey, I added all certifications to be highly qualified to teach all subjects in middle school as well as certification to teach gifted. The longer I taught, the more I realized I needed more focused instruction in teaching of reading to teach any content area, no matter the grade level. I taught 15 years in middle school before finishing my Master's degree in Reading Education. At that time, I transitioned to elementary school to teach reading; however, I taught math at the fifth grade level as well as science and social studies. I finished my certification in leadership and moved to Clarke County to become an instructional coach. After a couple of years, I missed the classroom and returned as a gifted teacher. I am now teaching 5th grade at HSES and love it!!
