          I hope everyone had a wonderful summer vacation. School is back to its regular routine, but with a new teacher.  My name is Melissa Smith, and I will be your child's third-grade teacher for the 2023 - 2024 school year.  Therefore, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself.
         In May of 2004, I graduated from Rowan University, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and Sociology. Starting in September of 2004, I was fortunate enough to begin my teaching career in the Voorhees School District. Since 2004, I have held several positions throughout the Voorhees School District, such as an Instructional Associate, 3rd-grade teacher, and 4th-grade teacher.  However, I have been fortunate to call Osage my home, where I have been teaching third grade for over eighteen years. In 2022, I earned my Master's Degree in Education, specializing in Integrating Technology in the Classroom. I love to learn and share my experiences and knowledge with my students and colleagues.     
         I am looking forward to working with your child and know that we will have a wonderful year.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
