Melodie Hardwick » Bio


My name is Melodie Hardwick.  This is my first year teaching at AMS and AHS, but I am in my 13th year of teaching.  I come from a teaching family.  My dad, grandmother, and countless aunts were all teachers.  I realized teaching was my calling when I went to Bangkok, Thailand to teaching English.  My 7th grade English teacher hosted me there, so don't discount those middle school teachers!  I am originally from Florida and grew up in Georgia.  I moved to Tennessee to attend Carson-Newman College (now University).  I fell in love with the mountains here.  I spend my spare time hiking those mountains, sitting in creeks, and chasing after my daughter and doberman.  My husband I also enjoy going to car shows (well, he enjoys the cars and I enjoy people watching).  
I am thrilled to be a part of such an excellent school system and I am excited to teach these wonderful students.
