My name is Melanie Maxwell. I am an instructional assistant that has been with TH Johnson for 5 years, two of them were spent in PPCD (or special needs). I am a native Texan, however, I went to high school in California and am now attending GCU pursuing a teaching career. I have been going to school for 2 years now and am hoping to get my Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education in due time. I have been in education for over 20 years working at daycare centers and working at my church for MDO. I am happily married to my husband of what will be 21 years. We have two beautiful girls Kristin and Laura that are 20 and 17. I also have a cute mini schnauzer named Bodey that is 6 years old and salt and pepper in color. In my spare time, I like to exercise, spend time with family, go to church, and do yard work. My favorite part about THJ is the opportunity to talk to the many different personalities here on the campus. I also greatly appreciate the opportunity that I have had working with my special needs team. Greatest job ever!
