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 several years, and this is my 4th 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 25 years to my wonderful husband, Ben, who is a professor at Boise Bible College.  We have 5 children (Aaron -22, Alaina - 18, Kloe - 17, Abby - 16, Hunter - 13),  so we are crazy busy outside of school. We love to camp, hike, play games, and take road trips as a family.  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.  This is especially true this year as school is going to look anything but normal.  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.
