•    Hi, my name is Courtney Mellies.  I am a third grade teacher at Sixth Ward Elementary. I grew up attending St. Tammany Parish schools and graduated from Slidell High School. Then, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Southeastern Louisiana University. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to student teach at Sixth Ward while in college! This is now my third year here.

       This year in third grade we are going to be working hard on our multiplicaton and division facts throughout the year. We will also work on fractions and other math topics. In ELA, we will become even better writers and thinkers. These are just a few of the many things that your child will be learning this year.

        I look forward to coming to work every day and doing what I love. I hope that your child will love coming to my classroom each day as well. I will work hard to ensure that your child has a great year in third grade!
