Please allow me to introduce myself and tell you how very excited I am to have your child in my class. My name is Melissa Overton.
I grew up in West Texas with my parents and three younger sisters. I married my love in 2009 and moved here in 2011 when my husband was stationed at Vandenburg Air Force Base. I have three kids; Chris who just graduated from Cabrillo, Evie who will be in 2nd grade this year, and my step son named Matt, who will be a senior this year and lives in Texas. I graduated from Sul Ross State University with both a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a master’s degree as a reading specialist.
This is my 10th year in education and my first as a kindergarten teacher! I taught 4th grade here the last two years and taught second grade for two years in 2012-2014. This will be my 5th year with my Manzanita family!
Welcome to our school.
