Melissa Macdonald – Grades 7/8

Melissa is an experienced math and science teacher and curriculum leader, with a background in outdoor education program development. Her passion is to create learning opportunities that go beyond the classroom.

She team teaches the 7th and 8th grade class and works with Wildflower community members in implementing an innovative program of student internships. The current vision is that students will spend several weeks focusing on a learning theme and then supplement it in the final week with hands-on, community experience. The program is both challenging and rewarding.

Melissa will also focus on skills necessary to prepare students for transitioning to high school after their time at Wildflower. She is most looking forward to providing thematic and service learning opportunities, outdoor education and collaborating with parents.
