Mrs. Melissa Hazen

Hi everyone!  This is my sixth year at Overhills Elementary, but I have been teaching for 20 years.  All of my teaching experiences have been in Special Education.  I started out teaching Preschool Special Education in North Carolina and then began teaching pull-out and resource Special Education.  I now teach in the Life Skills, Self-Contained Special Education classroom.  I keep my kiddos in my classroom for several years, and I love knowing my students and families so closely.  

I am married to Randy Hazen.  We have been married for five years.  Between the two of us, we have three children.  There is Justin who is 29, Cody who is 26, and Katy, who is 18.  We have two crazy and loveable dogs, Bailey and Boogey.  

I am excited about this year at OES!
