Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Melissa Haslebacher and I am thrilled to be spending my first year teaching with you at Countryside Elementary! I grew up in Morgantown, West Virginia with an identical twin sister, an older sister, my cats, Gus and Bobcat, my dog, Bently, and my rabbit, Chester.
I just recently graduated from West Virginia University with a Bachelor's degree in Multidisciplinary Studies and a Master's degree in Elementary Education. Let's Go Mountaineers!
In my free time I love to paint, craft, play Animal Crossing, and go hiking. I look forward to exploring all the different trails throughout Virginia.
I am eager to work with you and your child this year to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for learning. While I know this year will look different than in the past, I am confident that by working together I can provide a safe and engaging education for my students.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at any point. I can't wait to see all the amazing things we will accomplish this year in fifth grade!
