My name is Melissa Roussell. I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a Minor In Reading and Language Arts from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
This is, happily, my fifth year at Olympic View Elementary School and I just completed my twelfth year of teaching. My goals as an educator are to build a positive and kind enviornment and also to support more authentic and natural learning experiences with literature-based instruction (abundant read alouds with quality children's literature). I am dedicated to helping the students in my classroom become better readers, writers and thinkers.
I will also be looking forward to a year filled with smiles, friendship, discovery, communication and, of course, an excitement to always want to keep learning!
