Subjects Taught
2nd Grade



Dear Parents,


Hi! My name is Melanie Killingsworth and it is my privilege to welcome you and your child to my 2nd grade class. Killingsworth can be a tongue twister for younger children, so I go by Mrs. K. I am very excited to be your child’s teacher for the 2012-2013 school year.

This will be my seventh year teaching at Battlefield Primary School and I am very excited about teaching second grade this year. Many of you probably know me already as I have taught kindergarten at BPS for the past six years.

I received my bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I began my teaching career in 2nd grade at Ringgold Primary School. I then taught kindergarten for three years at Bains Lower in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where we lived while my husband received his master’s degree from Louisiana State University. Geaux Tigers!!!

I live in Rossville with my husband Justin and my daughters Emerson and Kinsley. Emerson will be in first grade this year while Kinsley is starting pre-k. It goes by so fast!

I grew up in Ringgold and graduated from Ringgold High School in 1998. Teaching for Catoosa County Public Schools is truly a blessing to me!

I look forward to getting to know you and working with you as a team. Please feel free to call me at school, send notes, or email me. I will be able to respond to email and phone messages during non-instructional times so please do not feel you are being avoided if you do not receive an immediate response!
