Hi! My name is Melanie Edwards.  I am one of Irving’s Specific Learning Disability Specialists and I work with all grades - Kindergarten through sixth grade.  I have been at Irving for nearly my entire teaching career.  I started out teaching first grade at Irving over 26 years ago.  Other than switching to special education, I haven’t gone too far.  :-)


I have a dual Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education/Special Education and a Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education – all from Northern Arizona University.


I am thrilled to be continuing my career at Irving and am honored to be surrounded with an amazing staff and administration that always puts kids first .

As Irving has moved toward inclusive practices in the realm of special education, my main focus is to facilitate the teachers as well as students within the general education environment. I absolutely love working with the kiddos and look forward to working with parents as well to enrich and improve the skills that your children have and those they will need as they develop and move forward in their lives.
