Welcome to 8th grade! My name is Melinda Reynolds and I am excited to be your child's teacher this year. I am married and have 3 children, all of which attended Chandler schools. Santan Junior High is my neighborhood school and all 3 of my children attended, so needless to say I think SJHS offers a great educational experience! My daughters graduated from Perry High and my son is currently a Basha Bear. I love that there are so many great choices in CUSD!
My Education and Professional Background
I began teaching in California in 1990. I have taught in Chandler since 1993. I am a University of Arizona graduate (Go Wildcats!!) and have my Masters of Education from Northern Arizona University.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe each child has something special to offer and I look forward to discovering each of your children’s special talents. My goal for every student is that we celebrate their strengths and learn to recognize, accept and work on our weaknesses. In my classroom, I will establish a fair and consistent learning environment. I will do my best to be sure both students and parents are informed of expectations and progress.
