Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Melissa Hartman

Welcome! I am so excited to at Woodgrove for another year! Here is a little information on my background: I earned a B.S in special education and elementary education from Kutztown University, M. Ed. in special education from George Mason University,  Ed. S. in transition, and an Ed. D. in special education leadership from The George Washington University. I have worked in the field of special education for over 30 years.  I spent 15 years in special education administration and missed teaching so much I had to get back to the classroom! I love working with teens and adults and have been an adjunct professor at several local universities over the years. Teaching and learning are my passions. I am very future-focused and interested in preparing my students to navigate the real world. I am an avid reader, love dogs (I have 2), hanging out at the pool with friends, and spending time with family. I have 3 step-children and 12 grandchildren! Here is a link to my video!
