Hello My Name Is...
Ms. Melissa Mottet
I am so excited to be joining the Forest Park family this year and am looking forward to the 2016-2017 school year with my batch of little 2nd graders!
I was born and raised in Ohio then moved down to beautiful North Carolina right after high school. Before becoming an elementary teacher, I had a career as a corporate trainer for a restaurant corporation. I attended UNC-Charlotte and graduated in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.
This is my 13th year teaching. 10 of those years have been teaching 2nd grade. I have taught in Cabarrus County, Charlotte-Mecklenburg, and Rowan-Salisbury School systems.
I believe all children can learn and be successful. I believe my job as a teacher is to find the way to present academics and opportunities in a way that allows students to reach their full potential.
