Mrs. Melissa Rose

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Cecil S. Collins School!

I am so excited to share that I will be co-teaching again this year in kindergarten with Miss. McCallum for both ELA and math as well as first grade ELA with Mrs. Hans. I am looking forward to an exciting year with your children and  am honored to have the opportunity to have a hand in helping them achieve their goals. My goal as an educator is to create a fun and safe learning environment where I can instill my love for learning into my students. 

In a nutshell, I have always loved children and teaching has been my dream every since I was a young child. I love shopping, going to the beach, the New York Yankees, and anything that involves my family! I have 2 children of my own, Leah who is 13 and Matthew, who is 11. They both keep us very busy! 

I look forward to working together as a team this year to help make the best decisions for each of your children. Please know that you can always contact me at anytime through a written note, email, or phone call. Please don't every hesitate to contact me for any reason!
