Welcome to 6th grade!  My name is Melissa Shea. I am so excited to be teaching 6th grade again! This is my 14th year teaching at Rock Ridge and my 21st year teaching. Four of those 21 years were spent teaching overseas in Panama.  I have experience teaching 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th grade. I graduated from Colorado State University (Go RAMS!!!) with a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies. I also earned my Master's degree from University of Oklahoma in Educational Psychology. 

I have a 21 year old daughter who is attending Grand Canyon University in Arizona where she is majoring in Special Education. When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and hiking.

This is going to be a school year like no other but I am confident that if we work together, stay positive, and practice healthy habits, we will have a memorable and successful 6th grade year! Please check my website frequently for important dates, events, and news.
