About Me

My name is Melissa, and I am a 15-year veteran and former Social Studies teacher from NY and PA. I taught Government, Economics, Sociology, US history, and AP Government and Politics. 

I grew up in Boonton, New Jersey, and earned a Bachelors Degree in Social Studies Education at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. While teaching full-time in both Geneva, NY, and Trumansburg, NY I earned my Master’s Degree in Inclusive Special Education at the University of New England. I live with my husband, two adorable sons, and two rescue dogs in Wooster, Oh. 

I was the former co-leader of #sschat on Twitter. Please join #sschat for an engaging chat with wonderful social studies teachers on each Monday at 7 PM EST.
