About the Teacher

  •  Hi there!

    I am Melissa Grube. I graduated from Penn State University and have been working at Sheckler Elementary School since 2001. I have taught kindergarten and first grade and worked in third and fourth grade classrooms. Prior to teaching at Sheckler, I worked at a learning center, coached cheering, and directed the North Catty Playground. I really enjoy teaching children! Why did I become a teacher????? It is the most rewarding job in the world! I enjoy watching my students have an "Ah Ha!" moment when they understand something they were so diligently working toward.  Best feeling ever!!!
