Mr. Melaski

This is my 25th year of teaching in the Hazelwood School District. I am also an alum from Hazelwood East High School. I currently teach 8th grade English Language Arts at West Middle and enjoy looking for ways to get students excited about reading and writing. 

I enjoy traveling, swimming, doing yard work, and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy spoiling my two French bulldogs, Harley and Heidi. 

If you have any questions or need to contact me, please email me at or text me on my Google Voice at 314.472.5944. My plan time is from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm daily. 

I have a quote on my classroom door that I try to get students to implement in their own educational life. “The next best thing to knowing the answer, is knowing where to find it.”
