sept 2015 Welcome to Fourth Grade 
    My name is Melissa Gerdes and I am a 4th grade teacher at Sam Houston Elementary School, Denton Texas.


    I am so excited to be a part of Sam Houston Elementary!  I know that we will have an excellent year that is filled with many adventures in learning and growing as a class!
    I did my student teaching here at Sam Houston in 5th grade. I have been a part of this Sam Houston since then, teaching fourth grade, second grade, ExPo, sixth grade, fifth grade, and as the Curriculum Technology Specialist.


    This year I am teaching Social Studies and Science.


    My favorite things to do are spending time with my family, traveling to places I’ve never been before, and reading.


    I hope you visit this site often and explore our school via the internet.
