My name is Melody Lloyd and I'm excited to be teaching 5th grade at Butler Intermediate School. I have been in education for 20 years and have taught Math my entire career. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have a small piece of property outside of Greenville where we raise goats. We also have a llama, 3 dogs, 3 cats and too many fish to count. We enjoy being outside in the summer where we spend a lot of time in the garden and the pool. I grew up in Plano and moved to Greenville in 2001. I have a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (Education) from the University of North Texas. I also have a Masters of Science in Mathematics Teaching from Stephen F. Austin. I'm certified in Mathematics grades 1-8 and 8-12. I also have an ESL (English as a Second Language) certification. I'm looking forward to a year of mathematical exploration! Together we are going to have a fantastic year!
