My name is Melissa Pardue, a.k.a. Lisa. I have two boys and a wonderful husband of fourteen years. I graduated from high school in the top 10% of my class in 1991. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor's degree in Education K-8 in 2000 and William Carey College with a Master's degree in Elementary Education in 2007. This is my eighth year of teaching with College Park Elementrary. I enjoy working with children and teaching them. My philosophy on education is: "I believe that every student should have the opportunity to learn, no matter what his or her socioeconomic background."
