My name is Melissa Farmer and I will be providing specially designed instruction for fifth grade special education math student’s. This is my 19th year of teaching in Isle of Wight County Schools. I LOVE fifth grade and am excited about the new school year!I grew up in Smithfield, Virginia and attended James Madison University where I earned both a Bachelor’s degree in Business and a Master’s degree in Special Education. I started teaching in 1993 at Hardy Elementary and taught K- 5 special education resource for nine years. I then decided to stay home for several years to be with my two sons. This is my tenth year teaching at Westside Elementary.
