Ms. Katie Mellus


I have been teaching and coaching at Highland Park High School since 2011.  Throughout my time here, I have taught Psychology, AP Psychology, Brain Science and Health, and Forensic Psychology and coached both girls basketball and soccer.  My path to teaching included outreach programs, cognitive research, professional coaching and academic advising.  My goal as a teacher is to be innovative with technology while keeping it meaningful for a lesson, and to get students thinking about their outside world in a new way by understanding the human experience. I also currently serve as the Social Studies Department Chair for Highland Park High School.
