Mrs. Melissa McLarty

Grade: 3rd

 

I have been at Monfort for 9 years now.  I have spent 3 of those years in 5th grade.  I have also taught 3rd and 4th grade.  Third grade is my favorite grade because there is so much growth and maturing that happens!  It has been wonderful getting to know all the families and students here.  I can definitely say that Monfort is my school.

Before coming to Greeley, I taught for 3 years in Phoenix, AZ.  These years were spent mostly in 3rd grade, but I also taught one year in 6th grade.  That was a great adventure.  I met many great people there and I was very sad to leave all my amazing students.  In the end, it was too difficult being away from my family and friends back home.   

 

In my free time, I love to play with my daughter Madilynn and my son Maddox.  Madi starts kindergarten this year at Monfort. It is a great new adventure for us. My family enjoys many of the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer.  Although after being in Phoenix, I can say that winter is not my favorite season!
