Mrs. Melissa Ferrell
My name is Melissa Ferrell and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Polenta. I have 20+ years of teaching experience and have enjoyed learning with students and teachers over the years. I have taught in schools in North Carolina from the mountains to the beach. I love teaching and learning and am passionate about empowering students to think conceptually and flexibly and to believe in themselves as powerul thinkers! This is my 4th year working with students and staff at Polenta and I am very proud to be a Polenta Puma!
My favorite drink is Lipton Diet Green Tea. My favorite snack is mango chili lime Harvest Snaps. My Wish List for our class is: crayons, markers, pencil top erasers, and dry erase markers.
