About Melissa Trickey...
Position: 4th Grade
Welcome to 4th grade! I am so excited to be your teacher and can't wait for all of the fun we will have this year!
My Education and Professional Background
After graduating with my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Cal State Long Beach, I attended Oregon State University and received my Graduate Degree in Teaching. I taught second and third grade for four years in Oregon before moving back to where I grew up-Arizona. I taught third grade in Gilbert for four years before taking some time off to be with my two children (who are now in fourth and sixth grade). I spent a few years as a substitute here at Haley before making the jump back in!
My Educational Philosophy
Our classroom is a warm, loving place where all ideas are welcome! We will work as a community to foster a love of learning and a sense of self worth. Everyone is special and everyone can do great things when they rise to the challenge! I am honored to have the opportunity to be a part of your learning journey!
