About Melissa


Bio

In 1996, I graduated with a degree in early childhood education from Auburn University. I began teaching Kindergarten in the fall of the same year. I taught at a local Elementary school for eight years, and then I was blessed enough to start my own, half-day, kindergarten at First United Methodist Church downtown. I have been there for eleven years. Over the past nineteen years, I have been trained to administer the DIBELS testing and I became a reading initiative teacher.

My favorite part of teaching kindergarten is watching the progress that happens in one year. It is such a neat process to watch a child grow from knowing letters and sounds to reading and writing. I enjoy the excitement they have when they realize their potential. Children enjoy learning when they have someone who believes in them and encourages them along the way. I love being that cheerleader!

Handwriting,

Handwriting

As a kindergarten teacher, it is a big responsibility to teach children how to form their letters correctly. Sometimes, we form our letters and turn them into art work. The children love this activity.
Phonics,

Phonics

I am a firm believer in phonetic learning. If children can learn to read through phonics, they will attack any word that they may not know. This can carry through the rest of their life. I enjoy teaching Saxon phonics because it is so repetitive. It gives children confidence to blend their sounds to make words.

ADHD

I have worked with children with ADD/ADHD for the past 19 years. In my classroom we change our learning location often. I realize that most children learn better when they are allowed to get up and move. I also realize that each child learns in their own way. I try to cover learning by sight, by listening and by physically getting involved.
