Substitute – Melanie Stanford

One of our wonderful substitutes, Melanie Stanford, taught our 3s class last year! We are so grateful she has agreed to fill in, as needed, this year until she finds her dream job with more hours. She moved to Little Elm four years ago. She has previously lived in California, Utah, Idaho, Virginia, and Colorado, where she met her husband Shawn. Melanie and Shawn have two bright and energetic young daughters and together they love camping, kayaking and exploring their new-ish state. Mrs. Melanie has an endless appetite for travel, loves cooking for friends and family, and can often be found singing at the piano or snuggled up with a good book.
Mrs. Melanie has a B.S. in Social Studies Teaching and a Masters of Public Administration. She was previously a high school history teacher and worked for the Air Force doing financial analysis, but more recently has taught her daughter’s preschool classes. Mrs. Melanie has a love of education, children, and worship and is so excited to combine those here!

The staff wishes the Lil’ Angels at Button’s KDO an exciting year of exploration, imagination, friendship, and worship!
