Melissa Claridge (3-4)

It is time for a new school year to begin and I am so excited to meet and welcome back a new mix of kids to my classroom! I am looking forward to a year of adventure and learning together. This year will look a little different, but my classroom goals of exploring  creation, growing into competent, compassionate citizens and drawing closer to our Creator haven't changed. As we adventure, explore and navigate the ups and downs of this coming year, I plan to keep this verse from Proverbs 3:6 front and center in our classroom: "Seek His will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take."


About Me

This is my 5th year teaching 3rd and 4th grade at RAS and I love it. Outside of school, my life mostly consists of spending quality time with my husband, Jon, and our two boys, Korbin 13 and Keegan 11. I enjoy swimming, hiking, exploring new places, reading, and playing board games with my family.
