Greetings!! My name is Melissa Richard, this is my first year at Sienna Crossing, and I am super excited to be serving as the ESL Support Teacher! This year begins my 23rd year in Education and I have taught grades K-5, served as a Language Arts/Social Studies Specialist, and an ESL Support Teacher. My passion is Education, and I am very thankful to have been able to serve students and teachers during my tenure as an educator!!
Although I am not a native Texan, Texas has been my home for past 23 years. I graduated from Jarvis Christian College with a Bachelors in Elementary Education, specializing in Reading. After teaching for a while, I furthered my education by obtaining two Masters Degrees, one in Curriculum and Instruction and one in Administration and Supervision. I hope to instill my passion for education within my students and cultivate life-long learning!!
I spend my free time traveling with my husband and helping him with his photography business, spending time with friends and relatives, cooking, reading and shopping!
This year, I will be working with teachers and ELs in grades K-5! I am looking forward to a great year of learning and building relationships!! Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-634-4380.
