Melissa Elam

I am a special education intervention specialist and have spent the entirety of my career assisting students with and without learning difficulties to continue their learning process and access the general curriculum. My years in education have provided opportunities to teach in multiple settings and multiple grade levels. These experiences have ranged from resource rooms to full inclusion settings. I have enjoyed opportunities to work with and learn from students from kindergarten through the seventh grade.

My current placement at Toll Gate Middle School allows me to co-teach with colleagues to provide additional support to the class, including direct whole-group instruction as well as small group support. I work with my co-teachers to plan, teach, and assess lessons. I will be working with them using a variety of structures to present, explore, practice, and assess academic standards. My current position also allows me to work with students in small groups to address academic needs of students based on specific goals and objectives.
