My name is Melanie Sheetz and this is my twelfth year of teaching at Brandywine Heights School District.  I graduated from Brandywine Heights in 2002 and went to Lebanon Valley College in Annville, PA.  I graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and a certification in Special Education.  I returned to Brandywine as a teacher in the fall of 2006 as a learning support teacher for 8th grade.  I then taught two years at the elementary school as a learning support teacher and was moved to the middle school in 2009 to become the middle school autistic support teacher. This is my second year teaching Life Skills Support and I am really looking forward to a great year. In my teaching here at Brandywine, I have obtained my Masters Degree in Special Education from Albright College and I am now taking courses at Wilkes University to obtain my Autism Endorsement Seal. Besides my education, I have a wonderful family.  My husband, Josh, and I have been married for six years and have a beautiful four-year-old daughter, Adalynn.
