Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Melissa Mottet

    Welcome to my 3rd grade Math, Science and Social Studies classroom!  I am so excited about this adventure and look forward to our year together.  I am partnered with Ms; Lanham who will be teaching Reading and Writing to both of our classes.  Please use this page as a resource throughout the year to stay informed about what we are learning.  The best way to reach me is through DOJO Messaging.  You can also email ( or call 704-932-8121.
A little about what to expect in my classroom... I have very high expectations for my students and create a calm classroom environment that is focused on learning. Please convey to your child that he/she will be expected to work hard especially when tasks are hard, follow directions quickly, and most importantly be respectful through both words and actions to everyone. I do believe that school and learning should be fun but each student must do his/her part for that to happen.

A little about me...     
I grew up in Ohio then moved down to beautiful North Carolina right after high school.  In the 1990s I had a career as a corporate trainer for a couple of restaurant corporations which allowed me to travel all over our country including a couple visits to Alaska.  I attended UNC-Charlotte and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  This is my 15th year teaching with majority of it spent teaching 2nd grade.   Besides teaching here at Forest Park, I have also taught in Cabarrus County, Charlotte-Mecklenburg, and Rowan-Salisbury School systems.  I believe all children can learn and be successful.  My job as a teacher is to find the way to present academics and opportunities in a way that allows students to develop a love of learning and reach their full potential.
