Mrs. Melissa Forster
Hello! I am so excited to begin my twelfth year teaching in Jamestown. I began as a middle school special education teacher at Persell before deciding to make the leap to kindergarten at Lincoln. In my opinion, it is the BEST grade to teach. I laugh and learn more about life everyday. I love all of the great opportunities our elementary school has to offer our students and I think you will too!
I live with my husband, Scott, our two-year-old daughter, Elliott, and our two big and drooly English Mastiffs, Harley & Teller.
Outside of school, I enjoy teaching Zumba, shopping a little too much, and Starbucks Refreshers. I look forward to getting to know you and your child better throughout the school year.
