Mrs. Melissa Monroe

Welcome!  I am so excited to be embarking on a new adventure with your little ones!  I am a firm believer that education should be fun and hope to foster a great love of learning in each and every student I encounter.  This is a big year in terms of educational growth.  In second grade, we strive to turn your student into a more independant and driven individual.

This is my tenth year teaching and my second at Shadycrest.  I previously was a 5th grade teacher at Rogers Middle School here in Pearland.  Mommy is my second name as I hear it often from my three children who help me understand the world in new ways on the daily!  Dance has been a huge part of my life since I was three and I have been teaching ballet, tap, jazz, and lyrical for 15 years at Dance Expressions in Friendswood.  I loe spending time with my family, doing crafts, and shopping (although my husband is not a huge fan of it...)

Reading is a really improtant aspect of learning and I have challenged my students to earn 100 AR points this year.  I know this seems a lofty goal but feel they can acheive anything they set their mind to!  I will meet all my 100 point earners for Menchie's, my treat, after school gets out as a way of rewarding them for their hard work!  I strongly encourage your student to read at least 20 minutes a night.  

To help us master these tough math skills, we must build a strong foundation.  Memorizing math facts is key to that process and since my students seem to love the computer, I thought what better way than a math fact game!  Please have your child complete a math fact drill on each night.

I am a firm believer in communication with parents.  My door is always open!  Please do not ever hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. I promise to do the same.
