About Melissa

As a 2010 graduate at SUNY Potsdam, I presently have initial certification in English Language Arts 7-12 with a 5-6 extension. I majored in Secondary with an extension of Middle School Education and Literature and Writing. I have student teaching experience in the eighth, ninth, and eleventh grade levels at both FA and NAC. I received my Master’s Degree at SUNY Potsdam as an Educational Technology Specialist in 2013. I have a coaching certification in volleyball and basketball.

I am very familiar with the Common Core Curriculum and Standards because of my experience as a long term substitute teacher and teaching assistant in the English Department over the past two years. Being employed within the MCSD, I am also accustomed to the the material covered at the middle and secondary level. I have had the pleasure to work in classrooms co-teaching with many veteran English teachers and also in other subject areas, such as Social Studies. I was nominated for the Frances Leitzell Award for excellence in student teaching, because I am able to create engaging, educational, and standardized lesson plans.

In my past experience as a teaching assistant for the English Department, I have enjoyed being in a variety of classrooms with veteran teachers. This experience has introduced me to a variety of teaching strategies that I have been able to implement in my own classroom. I enjoy being in the classroom and working with students to share my passion and enthusiasm for learning.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
