All About Me

Welcome to 2nd grade! My name is Melissa Duarte. I was born and raised in Redding, CA, and I have lived in the Bay Area for the past 22 years.  I graduated from California State University, Chico and received my credential from CSU East Bay (it was CSU Hayward back then).  I began my career in the late 90's at George Mayne Elementary, but I left the profession after four years to be a stay-at-home mom.  My husband and I have three daughters. This year Cece is a senior, Sofie is a freshman, and Lucia is a sixth grader. It's a girl party at our house, but fortunately, my husband now has a fellow male in the house...Henry, our new furry friend!  I came back to teaching seven years ago, and this is my fourth year here at Hughes. My family and I love singing and musical theater, and in the summer you will probably find us at Rio Del Mar beach or at a campground!

Homework

Homework will go home in folders at the beginning of the month. The students have all month to complete activities from a menu as extra practice at home. Homework will be collected at the end of the month on Friday. Clear book bags will go home everyday with books for students to read and should return to school every morning. Make sure to record daily reading on orange Frequent Reader Logs (20 minutes every night).
