ESL Program Support
Melody graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Education. After graduating, she taught high school English for several years before transitioning to the corporate world of BP in 2011. There, Melody managed learning programs related to mental health and resilience, communication and influence, and diversity and inclusion. She joined PLI as ESL program support in August 2021, where she teaches an ESL class, offers curriculum support to teachers, and oversees testing. She also volunteers with our Teen Girl's Group.
Melody previously volunteered with Houston Welcomes Refugees and currently leads the ESL ministry at Wilcrest Baptist Church. She is passionate about seeing each one of God's image-bearers walk in the fullness of their calling in His Kingdom.
In her free time, Melody enjoys spending as much time as possible with her friends, traveling, trying to learn Spanish and Dari, and perfecting her challah-baking skills.
