My name is Catherine Melody Steib, my students know me as Mrs. Melody. I am a native of Hammond, LA. This is my third year at Hammond Eastside Magnet. I have taught a total of 18 years. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Social Work. I was a Social Worker for one year before I realized my true love was educating children. I returned to college at the University of Stephen F. Austin in Nacogodoches, TX. where I received my teaching certification in early childhood and special education. Watching children flourish is a blessing. I am very grateful my job allows me to be a small stepping stone in ones journey in life.
