About Me

Welcome! My name is Melissa, and as of September 2016, I am working at my dream job of full-time curriculum designer.  Before 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.

I am also a wife and a mom; two roles in life that I cherish deeply.  My husband and I have been married for 17 years.  We have one daughter, 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!
