A bit of information about me:

My name is Melanie McIntosh, and I am an English teacher and Student Council co-sponsor at Deer Creek High School!

I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science in Language Arts Education in December of 2014. In the Spring of 2015, I earned 9 hours of graduate credit toward a Master’s degree in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum while I student taught under Jason Stephenson, former Deer Creek English, Student Council, and Creative Writing teacher extraordinaire, now Director of Secondary English Language Arts at the State Department of Education and my personal lifelong mentor. 

I have always been passionate about teaching, and I owe my appreciation of literature to my high school English teachers (one of whom I am now lucky to work alongside). My goal is to pass on that inspiration to all of my lovely students!

I am constantly searching for methods and techniques to improve my teaching – as I will be 20 years from now – because I firmly believe that teachers (and all people, for that matter) should be lifelong learners. The moment we say we’ve reached our maximum potential is the moment we’ve lost our passion! In July 2018, I achieved certification as a High Reliability Level 1 (of 3) Teacher with Marzano Research, which required months of reflection on my teaching practices. I plan to work toward Level 2 certification this year. 

My husband Chris, a freelance filmmaker, and I have celebrated two years of marriage and nine years of togetherness (we are high school sweethearts from Putnam City North). We enjoy watching movies, playing video and board games, spending time with our parents, and going to concerts. 

One final note: the best education for kids today involves YOU. Whether you are a student, parent, administrator, or fellow teacher, YOU are an integral part of education. Together we can achieve the best for the next generation.

Let’s make it a great year!
