I am so glad you have decided to come “learn on the run” with me! I’m Melissa.

I graduated from NC State University with a STEM degree in Elementary Education almost three years ago and have been living in fast forward ever sense!

A month before I graduated I trudged through my first marathon- an unbelievable experience of great suffering and accomplishment- and some pretty spectacular pictures, if you know what I mean.

A week before I graduated I was offered a long-term sub position at the school I student-taught at. Three days after I completed my long-term substitute position, I was hired as a fifth grade teacher at the best school ever!

April 2nd of 2016, I married my best friend.

Please read along as the journey continues…
