Mrs. Melonie Thornton

My name is Melonie Thornton and I am a proud Candlewood Eagle! I am a graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio where I majored in Elementary Education. This is my second-year teaching at Candlewood Elementary and my thirteenth year of teaching all together.  I have a deep love for teaching children the skills they need to be an independent reader, learner, and a responsible citizen at Candlewood Elementary and in their community.  I have a huge heart for children, and a desire to push each child to their highest potential. I'm looking forward to working with you to create an amazing year! If you have any questions, please email me at or call 210-662-1060.
