Melisa has been a life-long politics and history fan. She excelled in History and high school and decided to follow her passion. After earning her undergraduate degree in Political Science, she knew she wanted to spread her passion through teaching and decided to earn a Masters of Education. Since 2007, Melisa has been teaching AP US History at a local high school and has been asked to be AP US History Reader (this is a high honor which allows her to score national AP US History exam essays)!
Melisa learned of ES from the murmurings of her students and realized how many students she would be able to help if she were to join our team- it was not long before she became part of our family. Melisa greatly appreciates the opportunity to mix her passion with her desire to help students learn and appreciate the relevance of US history to today's world. She also thoroughly enjoys assisting younger students and those with special needs in various academic areas.
