My name is Melanie Cullen and I am a Reading Specialist here at Mt. Carmel Elementary. I help to ensure that our students are performing at or above proficiency in literacy by providing support to students and teachers. I enjoy working side-by-side with teachers to improve teaching practices during reading and literacy instruction. I am fortunate to be a part of this amazing professional learning community.
I moved to Alabama in 2013 from Arizona with my husband, and son. This is my 24th year in education and I have worked as a special education teacher, first grade teacher, second grade teacher and Curriculum Director in Arizona and Texas before moving to Alabama. We enjoy traveling, hiking, reading and love watching the seasons change here in Alabama (minus the severe weather)!
