Hi. I am Melissa Fitzgerald. I am a graduate of Bridgeport High School. I received my Bachelors degree from Texas Woman's University and my Masters degree from the University of North Texas. I am the Special Programs Coordinator (Special Education, ESL, 504, Dyslexia, and GT), and I teach 5th, 8th and 9th grade English. This is my 7th year at Slidell.

I have been married to my husband, Monty, for 19 years.  I have two daughters.  Makenzie is an 12th grader, and Makayla is an 9th grader here at Slidell. My husband and I own an auction business in Bridgeport. My hobbies include reading, camping, and watching Texas Rangers baseball.  I also enjoy watching the Greyhounds and Lady Hounds compete in all of their activities.

I am looking forward to another great year. I believe that parents are an important part of the education process. I feel that students are more successful when teachers and parents work together. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. My email address is, or call the school office at 940-466-3118 if you would like to schedule a conference.
