Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Melissa Edwards

Hello! Welcome and thank you for your interest in our clsasroom website! Please allow me to introduce myself. 

I have worked for Livonia Public Schools since 2000.  I spent 6 years at Roosevelt Elementary and have been here at Buchanan since 2006.  I have taught first, second and now third grade. 

I was born and raised in Farmington Hills and attended Farmington Public schools from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  I received my Bachelors Degree from Indiana University and later recieved my Masters Degree from Marygrove College.  I currently live in Canton with my husband, Aric, and my three girls.  Kendall is 9 and a third grader at Buchanan, Ivy is 6 and a first grader at Buchanan and Hadley is 1. 

This school year I will be working on building a classroom of independent and respectful learners. My goal for your child is to build a love for learning and all it's curiosities.  Students will be encouraged to approach new learning with a growth mindset and  understand that challenges are opportunities for the brain to grow stronger. 

I hope you are as excited as I am for the upcoming school year!
