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!
