Welcome to 4th Grade!
A Little Bit About Me
My name is Melissa Border. This is my 13th year teaching at Haw River Elementary School, and my 10th year teaching 4th grade.
Although I feel as though I am a North Carolina native, I moved here from Ohio. I wouldn't change that decision for anything. I love Haw River's students and families, as well as the teachers and staff members. One of the main reasons why I moved to North Carolina, is to teach at Haw River.
I went to three different colleges before moving to North Carolina. I went to Ohio University, and transferred to Zane State College in 2001. I graduated from Zane State College with an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2003. From there, I went to Muskingum University. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2006 (6 days before I started teaching at Haw River!).
During High School, I traveled to eight different countries in Europe, where I performed with The American Musical Ambassadors Band. I am hoping I will get to visit Europe for a second time in the future!
