I am honored to be the Dean for my 4th year at Tolbert Elementary School! My name is Melissa Mehalchick and I have 15 years of experience in teaching and leadership.
I am from Pennsylvania (Fly Eagles Fly) where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and after beginning my educational career, I earned my Master's Degree in Administration at Old Dominion University.
As an educational leader, my goal is to encourage and develop leaders within our staff and students; and to create an environment where all students feel they belong and have the opportunity to be their personal best. I value the relationships that I build with my students, staff, and families. I believe these relationships foster trust, understanding, and respect among the school community.
I am so grateful to be a part of the Tolbert Family, and am looking forward to another meaningful and memorable year with you all!
