Get to Know – Melissa Edwards

“God ordered my steps to join the TCS family,” says Melissa Edwards, who joined us this year as our 5th grade Bridge teacher. “I originally came to The Christ School for OG (Orton Gillingham) training and everything fell perfectly into place for me to start my journey here at TCS.”

“I have always wanted to work with students, even from a very young age,” says Melissa. “Teaching was a natural fit for my personality and my skill set. Teaching students who learn differently was a bonus part of the package, and I have really enjoyed learning alongside them. I want my classroom to be a safe space for students to learn and make mistakes. My class is amazing and they keep me young and on my toes!” 

“I am enjoying working at The Christ School,” she continues. “I love the strong community and family feel of TCS. Good vibes all around from everyone!

Melissa is originally from Toronto, Canada. “I have 2 boys, ages 11 and 16, who keep me busy,” she says. “I like to travel and try new things. Here is a fun fact about me – I was once in a Bollywood Movie!” 

Melissa shares her favorite Bible verse:
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13
