Hi. I’m Melanie Black, an educator and author who is passionate about helping others and learning all I can in the process. With over twelve years of experience in the field of education, I have worked with hundreds of students. I am determined to help students succeed in school and life. I am on an uncompromising mission to help others achieve success, and to lead by example. I have worked with and volunteered with several local organizations in Jacksonville, FL such as Communities in Schools, Junior Achievement, Pace Center for Girls, Duval County Public Schools’ Challenge Day events, Take Stock in Children, and Generation WOW.

I am on a mission to empower educational professionals and parents to help students succeed. Many students, especially top performers, are having trouble coping not just with the pressures of school, but also with the transition to college or university. Now more than ever we must focus not just on core academics, but ALSO the hearts and minds of students. With this mission in mind it is my goal to address the morale of these warriors who take on the task of preparing youth for the future. They are under tremendous pressure, which is why Student Future takes their well being into consideration when creating and sharing resources.
Armed with 12+ years of experience in education as well as being a homeschool mom, I take a holistic approach to creating educational products that help students improve their overall relationship with learning, and help parents, teachers, and counselors improve their morale and relationships with students. I provide educational opportunities, resources, products, and guidance that empowers professionals in education as well as parents to help students identify their passion, set and accomplish goals, and navigate life’s challenges.
“I truly believe that the best thing we can do for students is empower them, fostering self efficacy and a love of learning that will bring them a lifetime of success.” – Melanie Black
