This month's EconHero is incredibly devoted to her discipline and to her students. She attends national economic education conferences as well as a wide variety of professional development events through the Nebraska Council on Economic Education, Econiful, and more. She even reads AP economics exams in the summer.

Melissa's nominator described her as "a truly talented instructor, highly knowledgeable, and dedicated to educating students about the economic way of thinking." We couldn't be happier to shine a light on Melissa's exemplary work empowering economic thinkers during Economic Education Month!
