I was a classroom teacher for 10 years with most of my experience being in 1st grade. I am now a Reading Specialist and have worked with grades Kindergarten-5 for 7 years. I also write children's books and you can find those at Amazon.com under Melanie Davis Jones.
I think that learning should be fun and I love to teach in a way that allows kids to find their natural talent. Everything can be taught in a fun and interesting way and every child has something to offer.
My picture book Pigs Rock! was a Children's Choice Award Winner. I have also published 4 other Rookie Reader Titles: Big Machines, Balls, Field Day and I Can Ski.
I hold a Bachelors, Masters and Specialist Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I am married and have 3 boys. We are a baseball-loving family.
