hi there!

I'm Melissa.

Having been a teacher and literacy coach myself, I know what it takes to create effective and differentiated instruction for students.

I get it. I’ve been there.

I have taught every type of kid there is. I understand how much time and effort you put into each lesson only to feel like there has to be a better way.

When you work with me, you’ll learn how to meet the diverse needs of today’s classroom to achieve student success!

“We really enjoyed Melissa’s presentation. She was clearly very passionate about what she does. She gave our staff many easy to apply strategies to specialize instruction for our students and gave us the experience of trying it ourselves. She made the day fun and gave ideas for how to help students retain information. She explained the research behind the strategies she presented and modeled as well. We’ve actually already recommended Melissa to other colleagues of ours who were asking about PD opportunities!”
