Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Melissa Briner and I will be teaching 7th Grade Math and Social Studies. I am thrilled to spend my sixth year as a teacher here at CS Porter. I completed my K-8 Certification as well as a Master’s Degree in Curriculum & Instruction at The University of Montana in 2017. Before this I earned a B.A. in Theatre from St. Michael's College in Burlington, Vermont.
I was born and raised in Massachusetts and found my way to Missoula in 2008 when I began touring with Missoula Children's Theatre. To this day, I am an active part of the MCT family, and you may even spot me on stage every now and then! I also enjoy directing the after-school theatre program and putting on the All School Musical every spring. Please feel free to reach out to me for more information!
During this school year, I look forward to growing along with the 7th-grade students. I aim to have a fun, creative, and collaborative classroom environment where the students feel safe, respected, loved, and confident enough to take chances.
Please feel free to reach out to me via e-mail or phone with any questions or concerns regarding your student! I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
