Mrs. Melissa Forrester


Welcome to the 2021-22 school year and second grade! This will be my second year teaching in Fort Bend ISD. Prior to teaching in Fort Bend ISD, I taught second and fourth grade in the Chicago suburbs.  I have also taught enrichment math in third, fourth and fifth grade. I am excited to meet my new students and look forward to an exciting year of learning and having fun!  My favorite subject to teach second graders is MATH! I have a Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences, minor in Psychology, and a Masters in Education with elementary certification. I have over 15 years of experience working with children from birth-sixth grade. My family moved to Cinco Ranch in May 2016 and we are from the southwest Chicago suburbs. I have one son, Aidan, who is a junior this year at Cinco Ranch High School. During the school year, we spend lots of time with the Cougar Marching Band and enjoy watching Aidan play the trumpet.  We love to travel and often will go to new places each year during summer vacation and often travel to the Chicago area to see our family. When I have free time, I love to read on my Kindle and go out to eat at Mexican restaurants with my husband and son.  My family also loves to explore the the state of Texas and enjoy spending our weekends outside with our Labrador Retriever.  I am looking forward to a great year at BBE and working with our Bullfrogs!
