I thank God for Ms. Melody Cranford. She is heaven sent. She has gone above and beyond to help my child with his education. I appreciate her time and willingness to help him outside of the classroom. She is one of the best educators I ever met. I pray that God continues to bless on this journey as she blesses others!

Some people choose to be educators while very few are called. Ms. Melody Cranford is one of those that were called. Her passion for educating children is infectious. I was fortunate to work three years with Melody. I have to say it was truly a blessing, Even though I had been in education for over 20 years Melody made me want to be better. She helped to put the spark back in teaching for me at a time when I was almost burnt out. During my tenure with Melody she was faced with many obstacles. However, she did not allow them to get in the way of educating students. Every expectation that was put before her she rose to the challenge and even exceeded beyond. She is always seeking new ways to keep her students actively engaged and excited about learning. Her relationship with her students doesn’t stop in the classroom. She is there for them even during after school hours.
