Tribute to Melody


One of Melody’s spectacular murals!

We have some very special people come through the big blue front door of our historic house that is Instituto Estelar Bilingüe, and I would like to honor a specific young woman who spent a year coming through that door to teach English classes. She is one of the most creative and effective teachers that I have had the privilege of working with: Melody Smith.

Melody left her mark in both subtle and obvious ways, and we will always think of her whenever we feast our eyes on her colorful, vibrant murals that she, with the help of our young English students, painted on the exterior walls of the school. She also was extremely generous with her time, volunteering to lead several school activities every week.



Melody led Estrellitas Kid’s Reading Club every week and often volunteered to run the weekly English Conversation Club as well.

We wish her all the best in the world and hope she comes back to visit in the future!
