Mrs. Machell Wells
Teaching Experience: I cannot believe this is my 34th year of teaching. I actually attended Collinsville Primary and John Redd Smith Elementary as a child. School is a great place to be. When I began teaching in the fall of 1986, I thought it was cool to work alongside a former teacher of mine. I still remember teaching the first child of a former kindergarten student. I have now taught alongside two of my former students! I throughly enjoy seeing former students drive up to drop off and/or pick up students of their very own. Teaching children is what I love to do. I have 33 years of teaching experience. My classroom experience was in kindergarten and first grade where the love of reading is put into overdrive! This is my seventh year as a Reading Specialist and my second year as the Reading Specialist at Meadow View Elementary. I look forward to working with your children.

All About Me: I am married to Robert Wells who plays in the dirt all day. :) We have two amazing children who are now technically considered adults and two adorable dogs. When I'm not working, I love being outside. I enjoy working in the yard, kayaking, and riding four wheelers. My favorite recreational activity is to ride the front seat of a roller coaster with my hands held high!!! Did I mention that I LOVE to shop? I am a breast cancer survivor and my faith is strong!
