Melissa Ahlschlager

Hello all! My name is Melissa Ahlschlager and I am a functional life skills teacher for early education students, prekindergarten, and kindergarten students. This is my fourth year teaching students at UCISD with special needs. I graduated from Uvalde High School in 2007 and continued my journey at Baylor University. In 2013, I graduated with my bachelor's degree in business administration from Sul Ross State University. After working with abused children through Child Protective Services, I decided to pursue an education in order to make a positive difference in the lives of children. My husband and I are both teachers at UCISD and together we have three children: ages 7, 4, and 18 months. I am currently pursuing my master's degree with diagnostician certification from Sul Ross State University. I hope to continue being a positive influence for children of special needs.
