My name is Melinda McCoy and this is my nineth year to teach and my seventh year to teach 3rd grade at Bradfield. I grew up in Dallas and went to Lake Highlands High School. I graduated from Southern Methodist University with a business degree. I worked as a recruiter for two years at a law firm and then decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. I love teaching 3rd grade. Watching a child learn something new is one of the most amazing things I have ever encountered. I finished my masters at SMU with a focus on technology integration. In my spare time, I love to run, play tennis, and I even teach Pilates! I also love to cook and bake. My family lives in Dallas and I spend time with them often.
