Melissa Miles - 6th & 7th Grade Language Arts & Social Studies

Melissa Miles (M.E.) is joining WCS this year after moving from the SF Bay Area in April 2016. She earned her BA in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University in 2009, followed by her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.  Ms. Miles is currently teaching 6th and 7th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies. She enjoys incorporating performance and creativity into her lessons.

Prior to teaching, Ms. Miles was a street performer in San Francisco, working with her father to put on shows that incorporate magic, juggling, and ventriloquism into a pirate-themed show. They created a pirate ship out of a box trailer, with a working 15-foot mast and rigging.

Ms. Miles loves to write, particularly poetry.
