Peter Melton

I am a dynamic teacher that is passionate about giving students opportunities to shine and perform to their maximum ability. I feel fortunate to work for the greatest generation of children I have ever seen. Our students perform at the highest level, accomplish tasks that I could not imagine as a child and are more tolerant of each other than any generation in the past 40 years. My students program in three language (Blocks, Python and Java), they prototype models in our 3D printers and use basic electronics to make IoT devices. After 21 years the excitement continues to grow. Now we are pleased to incorporate Esports and all of the related activities into our classroom and club. I share these wonderful experiences with my wife Laura, daughter and son, Michelle and Peter and my three grandchildren Addison, Chloe and Oliver.

Why did you become a NASEF Scholastic Fellow?

Esports is an amazing way to bring students together. Our club draws children that play video games, record and edit video, want to sportscast, draw logos and posters, and play music. I want to be part of the team that helps build the structure to support our students in Esports.
