Melissa Smith First Grade - Room 6
The most important thing to know about me is that I LOVE teaching and I am very excited to meet all of my new students in just a few days. I moved back to Los Angeles a year and a half ago after living in New York City for almost 4 years. It's so nice to be home in LA. This will be my seventh year teaching and my fourth year teaching first grade. My goal is for my classroom to be safe, fun and engaging. I am looking forward to having a warm enjoyable classroom community.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy travelling or spending time with my family and friends. I also like taking classes in photography, painting or anything new and interesting, but I make time to travel in my imagination every day through reading. I hope to impart that love to all of my students. I have always been a dog person, but I currently have two fluffy white cats, Bella and Blue, who have adopted me. They are sweet, snuggly and wait for me at the door when I come home.
This year is going to be so much fun and I can't wait to get started!
