• My name is Dawn Melton and I am the instructor for the In School Suspension program here at Ponder I.S.D. I have worked for the school since 1996. I was first in the content mastery room serving 7th through 12 grade before taking over I.S.S. in 2003. I am married to Roger Melton and we have 4 children and one grandchild. I love what I do and it is my goal to help your child thrive and succeed while in my classroom. I beleive in encouraging students to see the best in themselves and to realize that everyday is a new beginning to the rest of their lives.
