Mrs. Melissa Santos

I am the Safe School Assistant, “Mrs. Melissa”.  This is my 10th year at River Valley Elementary and my 7th year as Safe School Assistant.

The Safe School Assistant provides support in maintaining a safe and welcoming learning environment for staff and students.  I work closely with our Principal making positive connections with students by empowering them to make good choices while in the classroom, and outside during recess.  In addition, I collaborate regularly with staff and, at times, partner with our School Resource Officer to reinforce our school’s behavior and safety expectations.

Outside of school, camping, fishing, rockhounding, kayaking, and taking road trips with my husband and our son are some of my favorite things to do.
