Melissa Dahms

Welcome to Third Grade! I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your child this year. I like to tell my students that everyone is a teacher and everyone is a learner, including myself!  My goal is to instill a love of learning into every child that walks into my room. Although the start of this year is different and full of unknowns, we will make it through together and I will do everything possible to see that your child has a positive school experience.

All About Me

I  grew up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and moved to Greenville, North Carolina in 1999. Ever since I was little I loved playing school and knew early on teaching was what I was meant  to do. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. This will be my eleventh year teaching at VFL. I spent my first 10 years teaching first grade and am excited for my first year in third grade. I am married to a wonderful husband who never minds pitching in on a school project. I have two children of the furry kind, who keep my life interesting! In my spare time I enjoy photography, watching  the Tarheels, running, traveling, and spending time with family, especially my amazing nephew!
