About the Reviewer:
Melanie Cooley is a senior at the University of Arizona.
She went to Yavapai College for two years and then transferred
to the University with her AA and AGEC degrees. Elementary
Education wasn't her original major, but she realized her
love for helping and teaching children so she quickly changed.
Melanie was raised in northern Arizona. She hopes to stay
in state and get a teaching job close to her family.
In the fall months, Melanie keeps busy by playing alto saxophone
in "The Pride of Arizona Marching Band." while she is not
practicing, Melanie works at the U of A Bookstore. Although
she is not pursuing a degree in it, music is another love
and interest for Melanie. She cannot wait to graduate and
start her goal of teaching in the elementary schools. (Spring
