Melissa Kriegshauser

bio_kriegshauser.jpgHaving grown up with a large menagerie of animals including a monkey, a pig and a parrot, Melissa has a nearly endless supply of entertaining stories to share with her second grade students each year. She is fueled by the enthusiasm and wonder of these 7- and 8-year-olds, who absorb information like sponges.

A teacher for more than 20 years, Melissa loves being able to observe her students’ growth over the course of a school year. She believes in a “freedom with fences” approach to teaching — complimenting a gentle, loving manner with clear boundaries in order to promote independence, foster learning and guide respectful behavior. She aims to be attentive to the individual personalities and minds within each group of children and tweak the curriculum from year to year to keep students excited and engaged in the learning process.

Married for nearly 40 years, Melissa loves spending time with her husband, two children and three grandchildren. She is active with her church, the Chi Omega Alumni Association and various local charities. An alumna of Visitation Academy, she also enjoys monthly reunions with several Viz classmates.
