• My name is Melanie Bridges. This is my 16th year at Cottondale Elementary School. I have experience in several grade levels, but I am currently teaching 1st. I am so excited to be a part of the 1st grade team at our wonderful school.
    I have a Bachelors degree in Human Environmental Sciences and a Masters in Elementary Education. I earned both of the those degrees at the University of Alabama. Roll Tide! My husband Josh and I will be married 13 years in October. We have two daughters Ella and Mylee. I enjoy reading and spending time outside. I love animals. We have one dog and 2 cats.
