About J. Melyan

I currently teach 1st grade at Valley Charter Elementary School in Southern California. I love how my school is founded on the philosophy of learning by doing. So, this summer, I am doing exactly what my students do on a daily basis! I will be learning by doing. Many, many thanks to Fund for Teachers, who have generously funded an Earthwatch expedition to Namibia! I will be volunteering at the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) for 2 weeks.

Just so you know what this crazy teacher looks like… 

I transformed myself and my classroom into a one room school house during my "Now and Long Ago" unit. My first graders came in and experienced a day in the life of a one room school house! Yup, I had that dress custom made and the kids loved the fact that I carried around a yard stick.
