Ms. Dawn Melise
Hello. My name is Dawn Melise. I teach 7th Grade Inclusion for ELA and History. This is my third year teaching in Special Education, and my first year with Manville. Prior to coming to Manville, I taught Middle School Special Education at Alpha Public School in Alpha, NJ for three school years. Prior to Alpha, I was a Teacher Assistant in Emotional Support in Pennsylvania. I also have experience in Autistic Support classrooms.
I have two children: My son, Robert, is 24 and my daughter, Monique, is 21. Both were very involved in sports. I am from Phillipsburg, NJ, where I coach cheerleading for a local recreation team. Please bring me your activity schedules (sports, dance, derby races, etc). I love going to support my students in their after-school activities.
I have an open-door policy for my students, whether that is before, during, or after school. If they ever need to talk, I am always available to help in any way I can. If there are any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
