Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Melissa Sousa
I am so excited to begin the year with your children, and see how much they grow. I have been teaching for thirteen years; ten years in Kindergarten and three years in third grade. My husband and I moved here from New Jersey three years ago and are enjoying the beauty of North Carolina.
I am excited to be teaching at Polenta and can wait to see how much my students grow and learn.
Looking forward to having a great year!
I am a mother of three school-aged children and keep quite busy with them and their activities. I love t spend time with my family and go to the beach when possible and read.
