Mrs. Melissa Coronado Abner
Hello Otto Bobcat Family!
My name is Melissa Coronado Abner and this is my first year at Otto Middle School, but my 12th year in education. I am extremely excited to be a part of this wonderful school!
I am from Pearland, TX my husband and I have lived in the DFW area for 12 years. I played Division I college softball at the University of Louisiana Lafaytte and graduated with a General Studies degree. I was then fortunate enough to pursue my love for coaching at my alma mater and at the University of Tennnessee Chattanooga. At the University of Tennessee Chattanooga I was extremely lucky to have met the love of my life and we have been married for 10 years.
My passion for coaching is something that has been a part of me and my family for a long time. Coaching is about being that one person who has the ability to make a positive difference in a person's life. I feel strongly that coaches do not, and should not, coach for themselves, but rather, for others; they should strive to show their players how to love the game. The best part of coaching is not actually the act of coaching, but witnessing my team’s growth, both in their play and in personality.
I look forward to a great year and wonderful adventure with these amazing students at Otto!!
