Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! My name is Melissa Elliott-Lowell and I teach English 11 and College Prep Reading 9 here at BHS! I earned a B.A. in English Literature, with a specialization in Creative Writing, along with minors in Psychology and Classical Civilizations, from Southern Illinois University. I also received a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Tennessee State University.
I am a mother of three beautiful children and I am entering my twelfth year of teaching, my sixth with BHS.
I believe in creating a positive, motivating, and challenging learning atmosphere designed to support each student's development: academically, socially, and encironmentally.
I work very hard to establish genuine connections between students and their learning and I am committed to their individual success.
I love what I do and I believe that it shows in everything I endeavor!
