Dr. Melissa Betsill

My philosophy of education is that all students are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow mentally, emotionally, and socially. All students can and will learn. Failure is not an option.  It is my desire to create an atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas, take risks, and respect each other differences.
