Hi!!! My name is Melissa and as of September 2016 I am working at my dream job of full-time curriculum designer. Prior to 2016, I taught 4th and 5th grade for 12 years. I earned a Masters of Science in Reading, and in addition to being a Reading Specialist, I have also taught at the community college level.
In addition to being a teacher, I am also a wife and a mom; two roles in life that I cherish deeply. My husband and I have been married for 15 years. We have an adorable and sweet (most of the time;-) five year-old, who has blessed our lives in countless ways. As a family, we love spending time outdoors and going on trips that take us into nature.
My goal for this blog is to inspire other teachers and share some valuable ideas that I have learned during my journey as an educator.
Thanks for stopping by!
