Ms. Melissa Picard

My name is Melissa Picard. I teach first grade at Memorial School. My primary goal as a first grade teacher is to create a comfortable, safe and nurturing environment in order for each child to develop and grow socially, emotionally, and academically. It is my hope that all of my students will leave first grade with a strong love and enthusiasm for learning. First grade is a wonderful and rewarding year. It is a fast paced year that is fun but also challenging and demanding. At Memorial School, I have a team of professionals that work with me to meet the ever changing, individual needs of all the children in my class. Included in our team are parents. Parents are such an important part of the education process, and we need your support and commitment. I am really looking forward to a great year!
