Hello I am Melissa Moffitt and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year! I cannot tell you the joy it brings me to be a kindergarten teacher! The growth that you will see in your child throughout the course of this year is huge. Knowing each of my students as individuals has always been my number one priority. If I invest in them, they will want to invest in their learning and growing as people each day.
The social aspect of school is so big. We work daily on social skills; how to make friends, how to socialize, good vs. bad choices, what to do when someone has hurt your feelings, etc. If the kids are not feeling comfortable socially in their learning environment I can not get optimal learning from them.
I have a wonderful husband who teaches P.E. At Northwest. He also coaches Varsity Girl's Basketball here at Western. I have two precious kids that get to come to school with me each day. Meg is a 4th grader and Duncan is a 1st grader. I feel it gives me a really good perspective to be a parent as well as a teacher.
Having positive relationships with my student's parents is a big priority to me. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to talk. I value your kids. I look forward to working as a team this year!
