Name: Melissa Hodges is MCTC‘s Human Services Teacher. She is in her second year as a teacher and had more than 1.5 years as a substitute. She currently has a Masters Degree. Mrs. Hodges shared: “I am a local JMHS graduate and attended Concord University where I graduated with a business degree in 2010. I love everything about learning so I then moved on and completed my Master’s Degree in Healthcare Administration. I started my professional career as the Executive Director of the Family Resource Network of Monroe County for three years. I loved everything about that job and being involved in my community. In the spirit of ‘climbing the ladder’ I moved on to work as the Clinic Manager for ARH for the next three years. At the time, I had very young children and chose to step back from the workforce so I could be more present with my family. I started substitute teaching once both my children were in school and found my passion. When the Human Services teacher position was created at MCTC, I knew it was meant for me. I love to read, spend time with my family, and watch/attend sporting events. I love being involved in my community and coaching cheerleading and helping with youth sports.” Thank you Melissa for all your hard work!
Tom Gardinier is the MCTC a Business Teacher with 3 years experience. He currently has a Bachelor Degree and enrolled seeking a Master’s Degree. Mr. Gardinier shared: “I was able to bring 20 years of real world business experience to the students at Monroe County Technical Center. Before coming to the classroom, I worked for almost 10 years at The Greenbrier Resort. Before that, I ran an Allstate Insurance office in South Florida for 10 years. As a transplant here to Monroe County from South Florida, I have fallen in love with the people, the hospitality, and this beautiful county. I have been lucky enough to coach basketball and soccer at the middle school level, and currently am one of the baseball coaches at James Monroe High School. I enjoy watching all my kid’s sports, including golf, baseball, basketball, softball, and gymnastics. I also enjoy exploring West Virginia and trying new restaurants.” Thank you Tom for all your hard work!
Kelsey Walker is a First Grade Teacher at Peterstown Elementary School with 4 years of experience. She currently has a Bachelors in Elementary Education and certified in Special Education. Mrs. Walker shared: “I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education from Bluefield State. I am also certified in Special Education. I taught Special Education at MVS in 2019 for half of the year. I then taught for 2 years in Summers County. I came back to Monroe County last year and taught 2nd grade at MVS. I had the privilege to come to Peterstown and be where my kids are and be closer to home. I love it here and am so happy to be a Pirate again. I love what I do!! I love spending time with my family, camping, reading, going to church and spending time with church family. I am very blessed to be able to do the things I do.” Thank you Kelsey for all you do!
