Welcome! I am Melissa Smith and I will be your child's teacher for the upcoming year. I am a 2010 graduate of the University of Montana Western and have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I have also taken classes in culinary arts, sign language, and early childhood education.
I have taught second grade here at Lindy Ross Elementary since 2010. While finishing my bachelors degree, I worked for AWARE Inc. a non-profit cooperation that provides services for children with challenging mental and emotional needs.
When I am not at school I spend most of my time at home in beautiful Monida, Montana, with my husband Casey and our daughter Hannah.
We also have two dogs (Moose and Guss), four horses (Lucky, Sunshine, Beau, and Maybe), and a chicken coop with a handful of chickens.
