Welcome to 3A Parent Letter
My name is Melody Williams, and I am beginning my 18th year teaching third grade here at St. Dominic Catholic School. I was born and raised in Mobile and graduated from the University of South Alabama with a degree in Elementary Education. My husband, Matt Williams, and I have two sons. My oldest, Reeves, is 10 years old and Chandler is 5. I consider being part of your children’s academic and spiritual growth a true blessing from God. I am looking forward to a wonderful third grade year!
Welcome to 3B Parent Letter
My name is Janna Lyons is a third grade teacher and began teaching at St. Dominic in 1986. She graduated from the University of South Alabama in 1978 and began teaching third grade at St. Catherine of Siena in Mobile. Her catholic school teaching career continued in New Orleans and in Baton Rouge before returning to Mobile and St. Dominic. Her family has been deeply rooted in the school and parish since 1963. Her husband and children are St. Dominic graduates and her grandchildren currently attend. In her devotion to catholic education, she believes it is both an honor and a privilege to help each child grow in their faith and knowledge in a Catholic school setting.
