Before I say anything else about myself, let me say this: I love teaching. I love it so much. My students crack me up literally every day, and I have really missed them during this time. Online school will be a hard adjustment for all of us, I know, but I will do my absolute best to make it as fun and meaningful as possible.
This will be my fifteenth year of teaching. I spent the first twelve at my old high school in Pittsburg, KS, and then I started at LHS in 2018 when my husband and I decided to uproot our three dogs and move to our favorite town. He's a teacher, too, at Broken Arrow Elementary. We love it here.
Besides teaching, I love writing (my author website is melissafitejohnson.com), movies (Liberty Hall is maybe my favorite place in the world), coffee shops, baseball, concerts, road trips, and going out to eat. Many of my favorite things are on pause right now, but school is not, and I'm so glad!
