Mrs. Melissa Stokes
Hello Salado Patriots,
You're entering an outstanding school where we Expect the Best and Nothing Less! My name is Melissa Stokes and this is my eighth year at Salado teaching and living in San Antonio. I am dyslexic and have a learning disability called Scotopic Sensativity Syndrom (or Irlene Syndrom) where I require overlays, or color lenses, to help me read and comprehend text. Once I discovered how my brain processed information I wanted to help children who struggle in school unlock their brain's potential with strategies and tricks for learning. I am a self-contained 2nd grade teacher (meaning I teach all subject English Language Arts (Writing), Reading, Math, Science and Social Studies). I've lived in Texas my whole life; originally I'm from Dallas/Fort Worth and moved to San Antonio after graduating from Texas A&M University-Central Texas in December 2013 with a Bachelors in Science for Early Childhood Education. I love to travel, fitness, reading new books, Cowboy's football, hunting, being outdoors, and playing video games. I do not have children of my own, but feel honored to be able to spend the day educating the future generation. I am certified in General Education for Early Childhood-6th grade, Special Education, English as a Second Language (ESL), as well as trained in teaching Gifted and Talented students (G/T).
