Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Melissa Fye
Welcome to Gifted Resource Education at Tolbert Elementary School.
My name is Ms. Melissa Fye and I will be the Gifted Education resource teacher for the 2019-20 school year at Tolbert Elementary. I will be facilitating gifted education instruction and identification in kindergarten through third grade (SEARCH program), as well as instructing in the 4th and 5th grades as a GT resource teacher. GT Resource is a new school-based Gifted Education Program for formally identified 4th grade and 5th grade students in Loudoun County Public Schools.
This is my 11th year facilitating gifted education in LCPS. I am a product of Loudoun County Public Schools (long, long ago) and was a member of FUTURA, SPECTRUM and SLP while in attendance. My previous experience includes teaching FUTURA (4th & 5th grade GT site-based gifted education program in LCPS), 2nd and 4th grades in LCPS, and 5th grade GT, Level 4 classroom in Fairfax County. James Madison University is my undergraduate alma mater, where I graduated with a double major and concentration; and I attended Marymount University for graduate school. I obtained my GT endorsement through the University of Virginia in 2004. As a Loudoun County native, I enjoy all the region has to offer with my two boys and many pets; including kayaking, hiking, and artistic endeavors like mid-century design. Recently, I moved out of my comfort zone to get certified as a PADI open water SCUBA diver. I have a strong internal drive for lifelong learning and hope to inspire your child to do the same.
Key dates and links will be available when school resumes for the 2019-20 school year.
