Welcome To Third Grade

    My name is Melissa Leathers and I will be your child's third grade teacher. I would like to share a little about myself. I graduated from Millikin University with a bachelor's degree in science. I subbed my first year out of college in Decatur Public Schools. Then I taught third grade for three years in Decatur Public Schools. After that, I went back to subbing in Decatur and the surrounding communities for five years, so I could work part time to raise my family. This will be my eleventh year teaching at Maroa- Forsyth. I have taught second, third, and fifth grade during my ten years. 
    I am married and have two children that attend Warrensburg -Latham. Our son, Mitchell is 16 years old and is a junior. Our daughter, Makayla, is 14 years old and is a freshman. They keep us very busy by being involved in sports. Mitchell loves to play football and basketball. Makayla participates in volleyball, basketball, and track, so I keep a busy schedule outside of school.
    I am excited about this school year and look forward to getting to know you and your child! Please feel free to contact me if ever the need arises. My school email is melissa.leathers@mfschools.net No question is ever too small when it concerns your child!
