My name is Melissa and I am a 12th grade Social Studies teacher in Cold Spring, New York. I currently teach 12th grade Government & Economics, Sociology, and AP Government and Politics. I have been teaching for 13 years in both New York and Pennsylvania.
I grew up in Boonton, New Jersey and earned a Bachelors Degree in Social Studies Education at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. While teaching full-time in both Geneva, NY and Trumansburg, NY I earned my Master’s Degree in Inclusive Special Education at the University of New England. I live with my husband, two adorable sons, and two rescue dogs in Poughkeepsie, NY.
I was the former co-leader of #sschat on Twitter. Please join #sschat for an engaging chat with wonderful social studies teachers on each Monday at 7 PM EST.
