Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Melissa Smith

Born and raised in Metro Detroit, I spent almost ten years living in coastal Virginia and then Ohio. I was thrilled to come back to Michigan to become a Mitchell Mustang in 2023! 

I am lucky enough to have worked with schools and students in a variety of roles-teaching in the classroom, supporting individual skill development, behavior prevention and intervention in classrooms and school-wide, and providing professional development across the state. My focus is always social emotional development with a trauma-informed lens, and my passion is strengthening resilience through connection. 

Outside of school, I love spending time outside with my family and pets, eating great food, and playing board games.
