My name is Melissa Mason. I am a recent graduate of Utah State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I am looking forward to exploring and learning with the 2nd Grade students at Bear River! I completed my Student Teaching at Adams Elementary in Kindergarten and 1st Grade. Some of my absolute favorite things about teaching are watching students make connections with the curriculum and fostering a community of caring and learning within the classroom. I also love finding joy in reading and exploring science curriculum topics in hands-on ways!
I grew up in Minnesota and moved to Cache Valley in 2015. I have always loved being outdoors, and appreciate the wide range of beautiful areas Cache Valley has to offer. I am passionate about music and have been singing either in school groups or on my own for most of my life. I am also learning how to play the guitar! In addition to spending time outside and singing, I love to read. My favorite book for 2nd Grade is "The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend" by Dan Santat.
