Melissa Perry - 5th

Hi! My name is Melissa Perry and I teach 5th grade at Jacob's Well Elementary. I am so excited to be your students teacher this year. Please use this website to get the latest information about our class and to view our newsletter.

A little bit about me:
I am from Allen, TX and have lived there my entire life. I attended Texas State University and graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education in 2014. I then joined the Teacher Fellows Program at Texas State University and earned my Masters of Education in 2016. This is my 4th year as an educator. I spent two years in 3rd grade and 1 year in 4th grade in Hays CISD.

My favorite subject is math. I also enjoy cooking, reading, dancing, and being outside. My favorite food is Chick-fil-A and I LOVE sweet tea. My favorite flower is the antique rose. In my spare time I go hiking, camping, and fishing. I love the Hill Country and I would never want to be anywhere else!

A few summers summers ago I got the opportunity to spend a month in Cintsa, South Africa. I taught a 3rd grade class of 40 students who didn't speak any English. I learned TONS of English language learning strategies and I also learned to teach without many materials. While I was there I got to feed and hug my favorite animal, an elephant! Needless to say that made the trip for me. I can't wait to see where this summer takes me:)

Here's a few of my favorites:
drink- Dr. Pepper
candy- nerds
store- target
scent- floral, apple, and seasonal 
restaurant- chick-fil-a
hobbies- hiking, playing with my dog, working out, read, and dance
things I don't like- coffee
