Greetings! My name is Melissa Chatman-Norfleet. I am a 4th Grade teacher at Dunbar Elementary School. I teach English/Language Arts, and Social Studies. I have been working in the education field for 24 years.  I have taught in grades 1-8 and served as an administrator for 11 years.   I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Eastern Illinois University in 1996.  My love for learning led me to pursue my Masters in Educational Administration. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with my Masters in 2001. I truly believe my life’s purpose is to educate children as a whole; helping them to not only reach but move beyond their educational and lifelong goals. I am happy to have the opportunity to collaborate with a wonderful team of educators, parents, and students to fulfill our mission. Go Eagles!
