Mrs. Melanie Ryder

Welcome to a new school year! I am excited to work with your child this year. It is going to be a year of fun, learning and lots of adventures!  This is my 5th year at Hays Elementary School but my 15th year teaching special education. Prior to moving to Texas, I taught self cotained K-3rd grade Life skills in Illinois. For the past 6 years I have been teaching Resource. I hope to instill the love of learning in my students. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I believe it is important to keep communication open. I look forward to a great year together!
