About Me

Hey everyone!  My name is Melissa and I'm the face behind The Reading Roundup! Here's a little more information about me!

Professional Me:

I'm a 30-something Reading Specialist working in Northern Virginia.  I'm originally from Hollidaysburg, PA and went to Penn State University.  WE ARE!  I taught 1st grade for 8 years before switching to my current position after earning my masters degree from George Mason University.   I became a National Board Certified Teacher, which was an extremely challenging but also very rewarding process.  I'm extremely passionate about helping students develop a love of reading and building their confidence in themselves as readers.  I admit to being a HUGE nerd who loves reading professional books to constantly improve my work.  I'm also a TPT author and LOVE making resources for other teachers!

Personal Me:

  • I love Broadway musicals.  
  • I'm an avid reader.  Are you one GoodReads?!  Love it!
  • I'm a huge fan of Penn State and Dallas Cowboys football.
  • I actually enjoy cleaning... such a great stress reliever!
  • I'm a big fan of making lists (hence THIS list!).
  • Family is extremely important to me.  My younger sister Amanda is one of my best friends.
  • I might have a slight obsession with Pinterest and Etsy.
AND..... I'm a newlywed! I recently married this amazing man and am enjoying every step of our new adventure together!
