##### About Melissa

Hi there! I'm Melissa. Ever since I was a child, I have wanted to be a teacher. I began babysitting at 11 years old and love working with children. While in High School, I was able to take classes that allowed me to be in elementary school classrooms for part of my day. In College, I studied Elementary Education with a minor in Children's Literature and Childhood Studies. I'm a natural born teacher and I love teaching. However, I am beginning to wish to move away from the public school system. I would like to be a homeschool teacher, where I can enjoy my love of teaching and spread the love of learning with out the restrictions and requirements of the public school system.

I have nearly four years of teaching reading to my students. I have an awareness of what makes students succeed in reading. I know skills and strategies for young minds to learn reading and deep thinking about stories.

I have four years of experience teaching Common Core. I have learned the ins and outs of how the Common Core works and how it translates from each grade level to the next.

Elementary students are my favorite! I have taught 4th, 5th, and 1st grade. I love their willingness to learn and try new things.

Please contact me for more information. My goal is to help your child learn, foster his or her creativity and love for learning, while maintaining a positive and nurturing environment.
