When we think of a motivated educator, we often wonder what inspires them and how they do all that they do for their students. Those who focus on learning experiences seemingly have the recipe for success. Melissa Hall is such an educator. As a high school math teacher, Melissa brings engaging and rich ideas to students every day. Her acumen for innovation in this regard is evidence of her passion for education in creating the best learning environment possible.
Melissa embraces a philosophy of student centered instruction, and excels in both using and modeling the use of technology to help accomplish her goals. As a math teacher, she regularly incorporates project based learning into her instruction in order to teach real-life applications of math to her students. Melissa has also become an expert in developing hyper docs, and uses Google Sheets to help guide and organize her students through PBL activities. She also earned both Level 1 and Level 2 Google Certified Educator credentials this past summer.
As a MassCUE presenter in 2018 and 2019, Melissa models her practice and is willing to share with others. Since those experiences, she has the “I can’t wait to show you” bug, and her colleagues reach out to her for suggestions for tools and strategies. In the words of Renee Hobbs, “Everyone Learns from Everyone”. Hall embodies what it means to be an innovative and collaborative educator.
MassCUE is pleased to recognize Melissa as November’s Featured Educator. Congratulations on a job well-done!
