My name is Melissa Smith. I have been teaching at MVES since 2001 and love being a teacher! I have taught kindergarten through 3rd grade special education, in both inclusion and self contained settings. I am married to Jerry, and have 2 children: Elizabeth, (10) and Jackson, (8). In my spare time I enjoy reading books, photography and spending time with my husband and children.
