Mrs. Melanie Chadwick

Teaching art is my second career. Previously I worked in the architecture and construction industry. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of New Mexico and a Masters in Architecture from the University of Colorado, Denver. After 17 years working in architecture, I decided to pursue my passion for education and art and received my teaching license through Pikes Peak BOCES. I have been teaching art at the elementary level since 2018 and started at Meridian Ranch in 2022. 

I look forward to connecting with your students through exploring art and seeing their individual expressions of creativity.
