Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Melodee Barnes. I am the proud wife of a Jeopardy! alum and the mother of two wonderful children. I have taught young learners for 18 years. While raising my family I attended school part-time at Governors State University. One of my proudest moments was when I received my Early Childhood Education Degree in 2010. After earning my degree, I taught kindergarten for three years. Teaching kindergarten was an enriching experience, but young children have always had my heart. My goal is to make school so exciting that your child wants to be here on the weekends! I am extremely honored to have the opportunity to teach young children during my first year here at Ann Reid Early Childhood Center.
