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 11th year of teaching. I taught preschool/kindergarten for several years, and in 2017 I made the jump to 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 spent two years subbing for West Ada Schools, primarily at Star Elementary and Eagle Middle School.  While subbing, I fell in love with teaching middle school, so when I decided to go back to work full time, I was thrilled to become a part of the Eagle Middle School team for the 2017/18 school year.   I live in Star and will have a 6th and 8th grader at Star Middle this school year.  I'm beyond excited to join this brand new school with a fabulous team of educators.  We are going to have an exceptional year. 

I have been married for 23 years to my wonderful husband, Ben, who is a professor at Boise Bible College.  We have 5 children ages 11-20, so we stay crazy busy! We love to camp, hike, 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.
