• Meet the Teacher - Mrs. Halfmann
     Porter and Mama 
    Hello and welcome to our 5th grade class! I am so excited to have you on our learning
    journey this year!

    My name is Melissa (Mel) Halfmann. I grew up in Michigan City, Indiana and attended
    MCHS (GO WOLVES)! My two brothers also attended MCHS. Following high school, I
    attended Purdue University, majoring in Elementary Education. I then taught for 5
    years in MCAS, both at Pine and Lake Hills. In 2016, I moved to Las Vegas,
    where I have taught 4th and 5th grades for the last 4 years. And now, I am
    so thrilled to return to my hometown to share my love for education with you!

    While in Las Vegas, I married my husband, Jon, and had a beautiful baby boy,
    Porter. We also have a dog, Daisy, who is just the cutest German shepherd you ever
    did see! In my spare time I enjoy reading, working out, baking, and spending time with
    family and friends. My love for coffee and teaching run deep, both
    of which you will undoubtedly find out as the year moves forward!

    Let's have the best year ever!
