    My name is Melissa Mandak and this will be my 25th year teaching at Hillside Elementary.  I am from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Elementary Education.  I received a Master's in Instructional Technology from George Mason University and received an Art Endorsement that enables me to teach Art in the elementary school setting.


    In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and family. I love to travel and read whenever I get a chance. I love fiber arts and weaving and I have enjoyed weaving since my elementary Art teacher, Mrs. Neidig, first introduced it to me. 


    Please email me if you have any questions at melissa.mandak@lcps.org.  I look forward to another fantastic year at Hillside!
