New Science Teachers

We are so excited to welcome two new faculty members to our Science department for this year.

Taking over our Elementary School Science program is Mrs. Shelli Henry. Mrs. Henry, a Memphis native, is a warm, creative, and enthusiastic teacher who comes to us having graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BS in Elementary School Science and having taught for several years both in St. Benedict at Auburndale School as well as in Shadowlawn Middle School. Her excitement for teaching and for science in particular will undoubtedly spill over to all of our lucky 1st through 6th graders who will have her this year.

Our Middle and High Schools are also receiving a boost to their science department with the addition of Dr. Melissa Matlock, whose impressive resume includes seven years as a Science Instructor at Hutchinson School for Girls, two years as a Science Instructor in Covington High School followed by five years as their Assistant Principal, and, most recently, five years teaching Chemistry and Biology and Germantown High School. Dr. Matlock's dry wit, commitment to her students, and high standards should greatly enrich our academic program.
