Welcome to 6th grade!  My name is Melissa Shea. I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach 6th grade again this year! This is my 12th year teaching at Rock Ridge and my 20th year teaching. Four of those 20 years were spent teaching overseas in Panama.  I have experience teaching 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th grade. I graduated from Colorado State University (Go RAMS!!!) with a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies. I also earned my Master's degree from University of Oklahoma in Educational Psychology. I am looking forward to a fantastic year teaching 6th graders here at Rock Ridge! 

I have a wonderful 19 year old daughter who is attending Grand Canyon University in Arizona where she is majoring in Special Education. When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and hiking. Please check my website frequently for important dates, events, and news.
