Mrs. Melissa Wilson
This is my 9th year teaching at River Dell Elementary school. This will be the 2nd year that I will be teaching in the Cross Categorical classroom, grades Kindergarten through 5th. I taught the K-5 AU classroom from 2009-2016 at RDE. Prior to teaching at River Dell I taught at BOCES in Westhampton, NY. I attended St. Joseph's College in Patchogue, NY and received a Bachelor's Degree in Child Study in 2006. In 2007, I received a Master's Degree in Severe and Profound Disabilities from Dowling College in Oakdale, NY. My goal as an educator is to prepare my students to be independent as possible, as well as socially, academically, and behaviorally successful in school, at home, and in their communities.

We had a parent information night on Standards Based Teaching and Learning planned for September 20th. Due to the hurricane and its impact on our schedules, we have had to postpone that meeting. We now have the rescheduled date. We will have our parent night on Standards Based Teaching and Learning on Tuesday, October 16th from 6pm to 7pm in our cafeteria. We will also have our PTA share some very important information at the beginning of that meeting as well.
