Mrs. Melissa Jenschke

This is my 19th year in teaching!  I have taught every grade from PreK to 5th Grade, and I am so excited to join the Wetmore Rangers as a first grade teacher!  I have been an Instructional Interventionist for the last 8 years in NEISD.  I am passionate about teaching and I love watching little minds shape and grow into wonderful little readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, etc. It thrills me to see a student who has been struggling with a concept finally understand and "get it." I will do everything that I can to help your child learn and be successful, but more importantly, to develop a love for learning!   I am excited to work this year with Wetmore's wonderful first grade students and their families. 

I attended Texas Tech University and Angelo State University and graduated from Angelo State University in 1994.  I am a lifelong learner and I love to go to professional development classes to help myself be the best teacher that I can be.  I am married to a wonderful man named David who is patient and listens when I talk about my students and how wonderful they are.  I  also have two sons, Jacob and Joseph.  Jacob is in college at Angelo State University.  Go Rams!  Joseph is a junior in high school and still lives at home.  He enjoys playing his drums as loudly as possible while I am doing school work.   We have three dogs, one cat, and a rabbit that are my joys!   I love being outside, hiking, camping, and traveling.  One of my favorite things in the world is going to historic places!  My family complains that every vacation has to have a museum, a historic site,  or a reinactment to go with it.    

To wrap things up, I have always loved kids.  I have taught children's choir, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, been a Cub Scout den leader,  and even had an in home day care when I stayed home with my two babies.  Teaching has always been my dream and passion for as long as I can remember!  I am excited about what this year will bring and I can't wait to see how my Wetmore first graders will grow!
