Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Melissa Mann

I have three amazing boys (and a new puppy, Londyn) that inspire me every day. In my free time I enjoy hiking, running, yoga, reading, gardening and walking the beaches in search of sea critters and sea glass.

 I believe that school is a place to feel safe, to feel nurtured and to feel cared about.  It is a place to be present and mindful and to learn new things. School is a place to be kind, helpful and empathetic. Curiosity is of utmost importance.  Learning about math and science will empower us, but first we must be good human beings. This is a special age and Sakai is a special place.  I love what I do and feel lucky to be a part of this amazing community.

This will be my 17th year of teaching.
