Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Melanie Sullivan

I was born and raised here in Ocala and love teaching the students from my hometown.  Florida State University is my alma mater where I received a Bachelor's degree in Communication.  After working in the Publishing Industry, I decided to return to school for my Elementary Education Certification at the rival college of the University of Florida.  I have taught first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grades here in Marion County.  My love for children has kept me in the educational system after having three children of my own.  My oldest son graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in History and is now a World History teacher for the Cambridge program at North Marion Middle School.   My younger son is also a Gator and graduated with a degree in English and has returned to continue his education in the Medical field.  My daughter is now entering college this year and has plans to either study nursing or enter into the education field too.  All children are such a blessing and I feel so luck to be a member of the Madison Street Academy faculty and now have the incredible opportunity to teach the Second Grade Gifted Cluster class.
