Hello, my name is Melissa Valtierra.
I want to begin by saying that I am so excited to be supporting teaching and learning at Crawford County Elementary School! This is my fifteenth year teaching in Crawford County. I’ve taught third, fourth, and fifth grades.
I was born and raised in Phenix City, Alabama and attended Troy State University. I moved to Macon shortly after graduation to begin my teaching career.
I enjoy learning and try to instill a love of learning to my students as well. In 2005 I received my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Wesleyan College. I received my Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Development from Georgia College and State University in 2010. I am currently working on my Specialist Degree in Leadership through Columbus State University.
I love working with the students, parents, and teachers at Crawford County Elementary School. The students are so talented and full of creativity. I look forward to a wonderful and exciting year!
