In case you don’t know Melanie’s story, here is a little bit about her amazing journey as an educator and entrepreneur!
Melanie had a strong desire to do more in the teaching profession, but wasn’t sure what or how. She began to think of ways that she could utilize her strong creativity and her love of helping others, while also fulfilling the need of wanting to do more with her career. Although Melanie was a teacher by day, she was also a self-taught decorator in her spare time. She had experience decorating and staging homes before she became a teacher and had the natural ability to transform an empty space into a fabulous showplace! Melanie’s passion for decorating and design transferred to her own classroom where she created functional yet amazing classroom environments for students to flourish in year after year.
In 2011, Melanie believed a classroom decorating website was needed for teachers. She knew that teachers had the overwhelming task of decorating their own classroom every school year. With so much emphasis on curriculum, creating a warm and inviting environment for students could be a daunting task for most teachers. Feeling the need to share her ideas and passion with teachers, Schoolgirl Style was born. Simplifying the entire decorating process, Melanie began designing her own coordinated digital décor and staging model classrooms to take the guess work out of classroom decorating. Melanie is currently living her dream of inspiring and helping teachers all over the world!
Melanie is a popular social influencer who has been featured on numerous classroom decor websites and has amassed a national fanbase of more than 150,000 followers. She has partnered with major companies including Lakeshore Learning, Oriental Trading, and Carson-Dellosa Education. Currently, Melanie has an exclusive multi-year partnership with Carson-Dellosa publishing and her designs have been brought into the retail market making it easier for teachers to create their dream classrooms. In addition to teaching and designing, Melanie has traveled all over the country hosting teacher workshops, decorating classrooms, and helping teachers solve their decorating dilemmas.
Melanie is married to Matt (who happens to be a school principal) and is a busy mother to three children.
