Ms. Melissa Moede

Welcome to first grade!  It is a great privilege to be teaching first grade again this year at Willow Elementary.  I am excited to have your child in my class.  It will be a pleasure to get to know you and your family, while working with you for the best interests of your child.  It will be an exciting and challenging year I am sure!  


I have been a primary teacher for many years, teaching mostly in a multi-age k-4th classroom and two years in preschool as well.  I have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education  from the University of Alaska Southeast and a Bachelor’s degree in Wildlife Biology from the University of Wisconsin.  Before joining the teaching profession, I worked as a biologist for the Forest Service on the Tongass National Forest in Southeast, Alaska.  So needless to say, I love the outdoors and spend a lot of my free time being active outdoors!


I am looking forward to a fun and productive year!
