Mrs. Melissa Williams

Welcome to my class and my website. I teach 6th grade ELA (writing and literature), and I am excited to share my love of writing and reading with you. 

 I taught preschool/kindergarten for many years, and this is my 5th year of teaching middle school.  I love it!  I am originally from the great state of Ohio.  I lived in Missouri for 8 years, and my family moved to Idaho in 2014.   I live in Star, and I am thrilled to be teaching right in our wonderful community.  I am also blessed to work with an amazing team of educators.   

I have been married for 26 years to my wonderful husband, Ben, who is a professor at Boise Bible College.  We have 5 children ages 14-23,  so we are crazy busy outside of school. We love to camp, hike, play games, and take road trips.  I also enjoy playing the piano, reading, football, am addicted to coffee (Starbucks is my favorite), and I am a passionate Ohio State Buckeyes fan.  

I believe that children learn best when teachers and parents are working as a team.  I am learning right along with you, and I am here to guide you and support you to the very best of my ability.  Please feel free to contact me (email is best) with questions, concerns, or information about your child, and I will get back to you in a timely manner.  Communication is key to a successful year.
