Mrs. Melody Daniels
I am passionate about Debate and Professional Communications, as they are sometimes an art forgotten by many students. Professional Communication is such an important part of the educational process, and Debate teaches students how to research, write, think critically and outside the box, and most importantly - it teaches students to broaden their worldview and inform themselves (from reputable sources) so that they can develop an informed opinion and go on to make educated decisions for the future of our Country.
I am starting my sixth year as a Speech/Debate Teacher and Coach. During my first five years, my teams made multiple trips to State competitions, placing at State, bringing home District Championships and Regional and District Medals. Most importantly, though, those students have gone on to pursue the military, law school, law enforcement, the medical field, the oil field and other eduational endeavors - which is the most rewarding part of my job as a speech and debate teacher.
Our year will be filled with competition, practice, and Gavel Club Meetings! This is my second year at Robert E. Lee High School. I spent the first five years of my teaching career at Tatum High School, and I am beyond excited for the adventure that continues to await us here at Lee. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions/concerns or to schedule a conference. We welcome parent and community involvement in the Debate Program and can't wait to meet you! If you are or have a Debate student, please join our REL High School Debate Facebook Group, and send me your email so that you receive Google Classroom updates.
