Ms. Melissa Alderfer
My name is Melissa Alderfer, and I am the special education department head and CLaSS teacher here at Clements High School.
Fort Bend ISD has been a part of my life since 1997, when my oldest child began kindergarten at Mission Bend Elementary. Since that time, all four of my children have attended school here in FBISD, and ultimately, each of them graduated from George Bush High School. I have experienced this awesome district as a parent, a volunteer, a PTA President, a substitute teacher, a special education aide, and most recently, as a special education teacher, team leader, and department head. Teaching here is not just my job; it is my home, my community, and my family.
It is my goal to inspire and equip all children to grow, to learn, and to push the boundaries of what they think is possible. It is my hope that every child that walks through my door will feel safe, loved, respected and challenged. I also hope that they will also find a home, a community, and a family here at Clements High School.
