Mrs. Melissa L. Maiwald
I was born in a small town in south Texas. My dad was in the military and because of that I lived in many places: Florida, Texas, Hawaii, and Washington. I graduated High School in Hawaii and went to college at Lubbock Christian University in Texas. I graduated from Southern Christian University and received my teaching credentials from West Texas A&M. I have taught First Grade and Kindergarten in Texas. I moved to Virginia in 2009 and began teaching Kindergarten at Barrett. Last year was my 1st year teaching 2nd grade...and I loved it!!
I have a wonderful husband named Ernie and together we have 2 daughters, Trenda and Shannon, our son Marshal, 2 sons-in-law, Ash and Roy, and 2 granddaughters, Gracelynn and Reagan. Our oldest daughter travels around the world, with her husband. My middle daughter lives in Norfolk with her husband, who is in the Marines. Marshal is a Junior at Freed Hardeman University in Tennessee where he is studying psychology. We have one awesome cat ...Dexter.
In my free time I love to do crafts such as embroidery, sew, paint, and refinish furniture. I also love to search Pintrest for new and fun things to do in my classroom. My weekends are spent with my family and going to church.
Some of my favorite things are:
Drink: Diet Dr. Pepper and Iced Coffee
Movie: Pride and Predjudice
Flower: Pink Peonies
I am so honored to be able to be a small part of your students lives. I look forward to getting to know you and your student this year.
