Degrees and Certifications:
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.
This is my 12th year of teaching. I taught preschool/kindergarten for several years, and this is my 3rd 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. We truly love it here, and it has been a great move for us. 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 24 years to my wonderful husband, Ben, who is a professor at Boise Bible College. We have 5 children, so we are crazy busy outside of school and inside of school! Aaron is 21 and a sophomore at Boise Bible College majoring in intercultural studies. Alaina is 17 and is a Junior at Eagle High. Kloe is 16 and is a Junior at Eagle High. Abby is 15 and is a freshman at Eagle High. Hunter is 12 and is a 7th grader at Star Middle. 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. 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.
