Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Melinda Bradley
My name is Melinda Bradley. I was born in Decatur, Texas, and grew up in Denton, Texas. I attended UNT for 3 1/2 years before I realized a business degree was not for me (much to my parents' dismay!). I received a degree from TCC in Radiologic Technology and worked at Harris Hospital and later Cook Children's Hospital as a pediatric sonographer for 18 years. I did the ultrasound studies on all children for Cook Children's Hopital, Harris Hospital downtown, the Edna Gladney home, Peter Smith, and Fort Worth Osteopathic Hospital, as it was new technology and I was trained in pediatrics by the companies producing the ultrasound machines.
I married Joe Bradley in 1986, and we lived in Ridglea Hills and had two girls. I retired in 1996 to stay home with our chldren, and we moved to Willow Park in 1998. Madison is 29 years old, a makeup artist/manager for MAC cosmetics, and is getting married in February. Blair is 27 and received a master's degree in accounting from Texas Tech. She is a CPA in Dallas for Whitley Penn. We also have 3 dogs: Paris (chihuahua), Penny (rescue mix), and Lola (black pug).
When my nest emptied I decided to try substitute teaching in Aledo. I was a long term sub at Stuard in Functional Academics in Spring of 2008, and hired on at McCall when they opened 2 miles from my house in the fall of 2008. I spent 3 years in Functional Academics, 3 years in music, and this is my 4th year in the computer lab. I have also taught art at McCall for the last 6 years. I am very happy and proud to be a part of the McCall family.
