Mrs. Mehalchick

My name is Melissa Mehalchick and I am honored to be the Assistant Principal at Buffalo Trail Elementary School! 

I have 16 years of experience in teaching and leadership and look forward to adding many more years while at BTES.

My hometown is in Pennsylvania (Fly Eagles Fly) where I earned my bachelor’s in Elementary Education and after beginning my educational career in VA, I earned my Master's in Administration at Old Dominion University. My husband and I reside locally with our 3 children and 2 dogs.  

I strive to empower leaders within our staff and students and foster an engaged community with our students and families through building meaningful relationships. I believe relationships are the foundation for trust, understanding, and respect among the entire school community.  

 I look forward to seeing you on the Trail!
