My name is Mellissa Stagner and this is my 11th year as a primary school teacher. It will be my 8th year at White Oak Primary.I taught 2nd grade for 6 years, preschool for 1, and am embarking on my 4th year in Kindergarten! I couldn’t be more excited! Kindergarten is so special to me! 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 starting my 4th year in Kindergarten! I am so blessed to have been given the opportunity to teach at such a great school again! I’m also currently working on my Masters Degree in Education as well.
My husband is Skylar Stagner. He teaches chemistry at the high school and also coaches football and baseball. We just celebrated our 9th year as a married couple. We have a precious six year old named Elli, and an adorable 4 year old, Emery who we both adore. They have been the greatest blessings in both of our lives. We also are expecting a sweet baby boy in late October! We couldn’t be more excited!
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!
