My name is Melissa Tobin. I am a 2006 graduate of Caverna High School and a 2012 graduate of Western Kentucky University. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and I am currently taking classes for a Master's Degree as a Literacy Specialist. I am beginning my fifth year at Caverna Elementary, but my third year as a classroom teacher. I have previously worked in Kindergarten as an instructional aide and as a reading and math interventionist in Kindergarten through 5th grade. I love children and as a teacher I want to show students that with hard work and determination, achieving goals that they set is possible. I look forward to having an exciting and successful 2016-2017 school year! Please feel free to contact me during the day on my planning between 8:15 and 9:00 Monday-Thursday, on Class Dojo at any time, or send a note in your child's assignment book!
