My name is Melanie Zuber. I have been teaching in the district since 2003. I began my years teaching second grade, and I have been a fifth grade teacher for the past eight years. This year, our fifth grade is departmentalized, and I will strictly be teaching ELA. ELA consists of reading, writing, and grammar. ELA has always been my favorite subject to teach, and I was also a part of creating the new reading curriculum over the course the last school year and this past summer. With the opportunity this school year to hone in on one subject area, my focus will be on creating meaningful and engaging lessons, meeting my students' needs in reading and writing, and creating an overall love of reading in my students. I look forward to a wonderful school year!
