Ms. Melanie Mackanic

My name is Melanie Mackanic.  I am one of the Intervention teachers at Oakview this year. This is my 18th year in WCPSS. For the past 8 years I have been teaching reading intervention and ESL. This is my second year at Oakview Elementary. 

I am originally from Texas and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Education. I earned my M. Ed. in Reading at Meredith College in 2015. 

I am married to Jeff Mackanic and have 3 grown children. My first grandchild was born in 2021-a precious granddaughter. We have lived in Cary for more than 20 years. 

In my spare time I love to be in nature-going on walks and hikes.  I enjoy reading biographies and non-fiction books. I love the beach, shopping and drinking coffee.

I am excited to be part of the Oakview staff and community this year!
