Mrs. Evans' First Grade Page!

Welcome to First Grade! I can not wait until school begins and I get to meet each one of you. I know we are going to have a fabulous year learning and having fun! My name is Melissa Evans and I have been at Westside Elementary since it opened for the 2008-2009 school year. 

I was raised and attended school in Lakeland, Georgia. I taught at Lanier County Primary in Lakeland for 10 years  before moving to the Lowndes County School System. I am a true Viking fan! I taught at Clyattville Elementary for 6 years before moving to Westside Elementary. At Westside, I taught third grade for 4 years, moved to 2nd for a year before moving to first grade. I received my degree in Early Childhood Education from Valdosta State College in 1992. In 2002, I received my Master's Degree from Valdosta State University.

I have a wonderful family. I am married to Keith Evans from Valdosta. We have three amazing children that are our hearts - Seth (and my soon to be daughter in law Jasey Cain), Kiersten, and Brianna. Seth, Kiersten, and Brianna graduated from Lowndes High School. I love to read, go to the beach, ride the motorcycle with my husband, and spend time with my family.  

First grade is an important school year! There are many new things to learn and we will have fun doing so. Please continue to read; READING IS THE BRIDGE THAT CONNECTS ALL THINGS TOGETHER! I can't wait to see each of you at open house on August 3 from 2:00-4:00. August 7 will be our first day of school. Bring a smile with you and be ready for a wonderful year!

See you soon,
Melissa Evans
