Mrs. Hankins

Hello My Name Is...

Melissa Hankins

I am very excited to welcome you to my classroom! My name is Mrs. (Melissa) Hankins.  Originally born and raised in Ohio, I moved to Arizona in 2000 and have been loving my desert life ever since.  I am married and have a fifth grader of my own, paired with three slightly neurotic dogs, Sasha, Demon, and Ozzy.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, participating in a medieval re-creation group, embroidery, and traveling with my family.

This is my second year teaching in the Fowler district, but I have a have a wide range of experiences from kindergarten to eighth grade.  I currently possess a Bachelor’s of Education from Northcentral University.  In addition to my classroom responsibilities, I am also the STEM Club and History Club advisor. 

Communication is very important.  I love interacting with my families.  I can be reached by phone at (623)707-2165 or by email

I am looking forward to new beginnings and the prospect of learning new things as we work together.
