    Mrs. Dudas


    Welcome to 3rd Grade! My name is Melissa Dudas. This will be my 14th year teaching. 13 of my years teaching have been spent in the third grade classroom. I received my Bachelor's degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Elementary Education with a concentration in Reading. I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Scranton.

    I truly believe that all children have the ability to learn. I believe it is my job to find what motivates them to succeed and apply that to their daily learning experiences. My goal for your child is to become a life-long learner in an engaging, authentic and hands-on environment.

    I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I moved to Northern Virginia 13 years ago and currently live in Leesburg. When I am not at school, I am spending time with my husband Jason, and our two girls, Makenna (11) and Emily (9). We enjoy watching our home teams (Go Steelers and Pens!), watching both girls play softball and watching movies together.

    I love teaching third grade and look forward to creating a fun learning environment for your child. I believe it is vital to have open communication with one another as we are a team in your child’s educational journey. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns via email. I look forward to working with you and your child this year.
