Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Melissa Davenport and this is my first year here at GSIC. I have a bachelor's degree in Special Education from Georgia Southern University and am dual certified in special education and early childhood education. I also have a master's degree from Georgia Southern University in Curriculum and Instruction-Accomplished Teaching. For the past 10 years, I have been teaching elementary special education Kindergarten through Fifth grade. Prior to that, I taught one year of Pre-Kindergarten, and one year of special education Pre-Kindergarten. I am from this area and grew up just a few houses down from the school. I have two girls, Willow and Tallulah who will also be attending Preschool here. In my free time, I enjoy fishing, hunting, travelling, and spending time with my family. I look forward to working with your child this year and getting to know your family. I think it is very important for teachers, parents, and students to work together towards student success. Please let me know if you ever have questions or concerns and don't hesitate to ask. I will be available by email (email@example.com) or on Class Dojo which will most likely be the quickest response. I look forward to a wonderful year!
