About Mel Cunningham
Welcome to my blog, Teach and Live on Purpose!
I'm Mel Cunningham, and I have been an educator for over 12 years. I have held numerous roles from language arts teacher to assistant principal to instructional coach. I currently work in the Chicago suburbs as an instructional coach at the middle school level. I am especially passionate about student-led classrooms, inquiry-based learning, and skills-based instruction. I also love to to write, present, and collaborate with educators.
Outside of work, I enjoy photography, reading, hiking, and traveling with my husband, Frank. I am also very big into mindfulness, meditation, and everything Tony Robbins and Byron Katie.
