Hi! I'm Melissa and I just recently relocate to Jacksonville along with starting my 1st year at Florida State College of Jacksonville for my Elementary Education degree.

My experiences had begun years ago when my own children were in school and I started substituting in the elementary school. There were very few days that I wasn't working and I was able to interact with the students from all grade levels from Pre-K to 5th grade. I would fill in for many different teachers and it was a new experience. I would be librarian, art teacher, PE teacher, assistant teacher and lead teacher. I would follow the lesson plans and teach the children how to have fun as well while doing their work.

I'm very adaptable and when I say that, I am meaning If I work in one classroom and I'm needed in another, I know what's expected of me and move forward. I have taught children of all ages the many main core subjects to their capabilities.

My last position was as an assistant teacher with a lead teacher for 3 homeschooled sisters of different ages. 1 girl is on the ASD and I would work closely with her therapists. I would assist with planning out their weekly assignments, recess times and work with each girl individually when help was needed.

Although each position had something in common, they were different as with each child. I am also known for communicating well with parents on the status of their children's work. I feel you need to have as wel
