The Little Mermaid
Save the date to see the show Nov 3rd and 4th!
My name is Melissa Wilks. I am genuinely happy to encourage your students each day. Though relatively new to Glenwood, I am a veteran teacher. Also, my children are life long Glenwood learners.
My degrees are in Theatre Education, but I also have the opportunity to teach visual art. All courses, with the exception of DE Theatre, are designed as integrated arts courses. I strive to broaden the students' awareness of all Fine Arts by connecting fine arts to each other and to life skills. Our goal is to explore and appreciate, if we discover talent, that is only a bonus!
Throughout my teaching career I have been blessed with recognition and opportunities to grow professionally. I was the 2008 Muscogee County Teacher of the Year, named a Georgia Master teacher in 2009, became a Harvard fellow in 2012 attending their Project Zero Program, and was named a finalist for the 2017 Page One Top Teacher Award. I say that to assure you that whatever "fun" you hear of in Fine Arts, it is underscored with learning and developmentally appropriate curriculum. I love to teach and take it more seriously than it might ever seem.
Thank you for the opportunity to invest in your children.
