ReinischMy name is Melissa Reinisch and I've been teaching first and second grade at the Taylor School for 7 years.

A little about myself...

* My favorite children's book and read aloud is The One and Only Ivan.

* I love to spend time with my family. I have three children, Jake 16, Sydney 15 and Cooper 13.

My teaching philosophy can be summarized with this one quote from Teddy Roosevelt, "They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."

In my experience, children, especially young children, can sense when they feel cared about. When that strong personal connection is made then wonderful things can happen in the classroom!
