Mrs. Melba Chance

I was born and raised in Missouri; graduated from Moberly High School in 1977 and from Springfield's  Southwest MO State Univ. (Now MO State Univ) in 1981 with a BA in Antiquities (Ancient Near Eastern/Classical Studies, Religious Studies minor). I married my soulmate, Paul, in 1982, moved to Joplin, Ryan was born in 1985 and Christy in 1987. We moved to The Colony, TX in 1988. I was a stay home mom by choice until going back for secondary ed social studies teaching certification at TWU in 1998. I taught at the middle and high school levels, then returned to TWU for a Maters in History in 2012. I taught part time for Collin College for five years and am pleased to return to full time employment with Little Elm HS.

I love to travel! As a child, my parents took us to all 48 continental states on summer vacations; as an adult, I have also visited Alaska and Hawaii. I spent a month in college doing archaeological work in Israel, toured several European countries as a People to People Student Ambassador leader in 2000, have traveled with my husband's work to several other European countries, South Africa, Australia, and have visited a few Caribbean/Central American countries on family vacations. Lots of places are still on my bucket list!

I sing, play keyboard and some guitar, write/record my own music, play/sing in our church's praise team, and love to read.
