Melody Coryell, Director of Academies and Pathways for Indianapolis Public Schools, was inspired to pursue her path at a young age. In second grade, she was accepted into an educational program in Kokomo, Indiana, that demonstrated to Coryell how education can open a young person’s eyes to the world and, in the process, change lives.
Coryell arrived to Shortridge High in July 2014 after more than a decade as the IB coordinator and an English teacher at Lawrence North High School in Lawrence Township. There, she instituted recruitment strategies and modified program implementation to provide access to IB programs for all students.
Coryell hones her skills as Director of Academies and Pathways for Indianapolis Public schools, working to provide all students access to strong programs that lead to enrollment, employment, or enlistment.
Coryell received dual bachelor’s degrees in English and history from Ball State University in 2001; a teaching degree at Indiana Wesleyan University in 2013; and a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from Butler University in 2015.
