Mariana Melo

Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)


My name is Mariana Melo, and I am originally from Medellin, Colombia, but I grew up in San Antonio, Texas. I went to Texas A&M University where I studied English with a concentration in secondary education. In college, I had the opportunity to work as an AmeriCorps teaching fellow with the Breakthrough Collaborative, an experience that drove my interest in learning more about urban education. I am looking forward to joining the MAT program and being in Providence!
