About Ms. Melanie Alvarez

My name is Ms. Alvarez, soon to be Mrs. Hall. This is my 7th year at Grand Prairie High and hope to retire here some day. This is also my 11th year of teaching. I graduated from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, TX. West Texas. I majored in All-Level Physical Education with a minor in Spanish. I loved college! I am the baby of 4 and the first to graduate from college out of my family. I have a mom, a dad, 2 older sisters, an older brother, and 10 nieces and nephews, and now a fiancé. I was a surprise baby. You will hear the story some day, I'm sure.

I am just like you in a lot of ways. I was a student that should have been in AVID, but we didn't have it in my school when I was in high school; however, I had the desire to advance via my own individual determination, and I did. I have many stories to share with you, and I will. I realized in 10th grade that I was smart, I was worthy of a college education and I was important for this world. No matter what anyone else thought of me, all that mattered and still matters, is what I think of myself.

Let's get to know each other and have a great year. College, here we come!!! I'd love to help you meet your goals if you are willing to work hard and let me. I promise to work hard for you at all times, but I also expect the same from you. Together, we will work hard to accomplish our goals.
