Hello! I am Mrs. Mellott and I am thrilled to be your 1st grade teacher this year! We have so many amazing things to learn about and will have many days together to have fun while we learn and build our classroom community. I cannot wait to meet each of you and am excited to get to know all about you!
Here is a little bit about me. I grew up in Minnesota and moved to Gilbert, Arizona in 1998. I met my husband here and we live right down the road from Coronado Elementary with our three children, a giant yellow lab, and our sweet cat. I went to the University of Minnesota and completed my degree at Grand Canyon University in 2008. I am currently completing my Early Childhood Education certification at Rio Salado College. Working with children has always been my passion and after 3 years of substitute teaching in the Higley school district I am thrilled to be moving into a full-time teaching position.
I believe that every child has the ability to learn and it is my job to find the best method for helping them achieve their goals. I want my classroom to feel like a second home with a warm, inviting atmosphere that helps each child advance in their learning goals within an amazing class community. Open communication is key to encouraging our class community, so please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
I am looking so forward to starting your first grade adventure!
Mrs. Kerrie Mellott
