My name is Mellissa Stagner and this is my 7th year as a primary school teacher. Although, it will be my first year as a kindergarten teacher. I couldn’t be more excited about this new journey! It will be my 5th year at White Oak Primary. I am ecstatic about all of the wonderful and exciting adventures this year promises!
I am originally from Mt. Pleasant, Texas and graduated high school from there in 2003. I continued my education at The University of Texas at Tyler where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. My teaching career began at Kilgore ISD. I taught second grade there for two years. After that, I moved to White Oak where I was closer to my family. I taught second grade here for four years before staying home one year to raise my two young daughters and teach a preschool at my home. Now, I am back and thrilled to be at the best school ever! I am so blessed to have been given the opportunity to teach at such a great school again!
My husband is Skylar Stagner. He teaches chemistry and physics at the high school and also coaches football and baseball. We just celebrated our 6th year as a married couple. We have a precious three year old named Elli, and an adorable 16 month old, Emery who we both adore. They have been the greatest blessings in both of our lives.
It is my goal this year to provide a warm, safe, stimulating environment where your child will develop skills and confidence which will prepare them for a successful academic career. Thank you for your support and I am excited to be working with you throughout the school year!
