These assignments are part of the grading process for 4th quarter, which is taking place through Distance Learning. These teachers have given instructions on how to submit the work through SeeSaw, Canvas, or email. If you have any questions, please contact the specialist teacher directly.

Teresa Schad 3rd year as Assistant Speech Coach I just love watching the confidence grow throughout the season with each speaker. Speech teaches lifelong tools to help students with public speaking, creative writing, and dealing with adversity with subjective judges. They learn that supporting others is a key component to having a championship team. Every speaker makes a difference and is truly valued and important to our success! Plus - an amazing coaching staff is an added bonus!

Evan Reller This is my 6th year coaching high school basketball, my third for Melrose Area. I have also coached middle school football for 6 years as well. My favorite part about coaching athletics is helping the athletes grow in their understanding of the sport, but also seeing their growth as people.
