Hello everyone! My name is Melissa Guzzo and I am so delighted and privileged to be a part of the CIS community for another year. This is year 3 for me at CIS and I am so excited for the 2018-2019 school year! I was born and raised in Edmonton Alberta Canada. I studied at the University of Alberta where I received my Bachelor of Education majoring in Elementary Education. This is my 13th year of teaching. I have taught children from the ages of 5 years old to 15! This year I have been given the privilege of being Makerspace lead! I am most excited for this as I get to design, construct and create with all the students at CIS!
Throughout my career I have been blessed to work with students coming from all different backgrounds and abilities. To me there is no greater joy then watching a child engaged with their learning and how proud they feel when they accomplish challenges.
I am a teacher because I love to learn! On a daily basis I learn from the students on how I can strengthen my teaching abilities as we take our learning journey together. There is no greater sound in the world then children’s laughter and I am lucky enough to experience this on a daily basis.
