Skyway Eagles - We are Leaders!
* WELCOME TO MS. McKenna's 5TH GRADE CLASS *
As Fifth Graders, we will approach each day as leaders of our school. We will represent our school by demonstrating the S.O.A.R. motto and showing the younger classes what it means to be a Skyway Eagle!
My name is Melissa McKenna. I am excited to be your 5th grade teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. This will be my 7th year teaching at Skyway Elementary School and my 20th year teaching in the Coeur d'Alene School District. I have a son who is 5 years old and we enjoy living in this beautiful area. We love the outdoors, playing sports, going to concerts, and trying new and fun things. I can't wait to meet you and I am excited to make this the best school year yet!
MY EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Idaho in 1998. I have been teaching for 19 years and 13+ of those have been at the middle school level. Teaching at this level has proven to be an asset for teaching 5th graders in both academics and in transitioning to the middle school level. While teaching, I continued my education completing my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership in 2005. I am passionate about learning and I believe it is important to pass on the desire to become a lifelong learner!
Call or email & I will get back to you as soon as I can.
