I have been teaching for 16 years and have taught in public schools, online classes, and at our local homeschool co-op. I have 3 sons who have been homeschooling for 4 years. I love sports, and I am SUPER competitive!
The image below shows students during an owl pellet dissection in Melissa’s class. The bottom photo is of Melissa and three students when they met at Six Flags this summer. Cool story- it was homeschool day at Six Flags over Texas, and Melissa’s biology kids mentioned it to each other during class. Melissa told them that they could meet there, thinking that they wouldn’t be able to come since the student who mentioned it wasn’t from Texas. It turned out that a group of them were coming anyway! The picture is of two students who were in Melissa’s bio classes this year and a student from her algebra class last year.
What others are saying about Melissa
“She allowed my son to ask as many questions that he had. Never seemed to bother her. She gave quizzes to help students prepare for the test. I also like the study questions for him to do. She also gave bonus questions to help students. She never let a student know they should already know something. She had an open door policy and very helpful. You knew that God is her strength and director in the class setting.”
“Great teacher as she explains math concepts and processes EXTREMELY well.”
“Excellent sense of humor, engaging, great class environment, friendly yet responsible.”

Join The Academy Family
The Academy at Bright Ideas Press offers middle school and high school courses for Christian homeschooling families to either supplement or replace their current curriculum. Families will be able to choose from a wide variety of course offerings offered either as live, online classes or as self-paced, asynchronous classes.
These options will meet the needs of all types of students, from those who enjoy learning under a teacher while interacting with other students, to those who prefer to learn more independently at their own pace. Taught from a Christian worldview, our classes will encourage students to develop excellent independent study skills which will benefit them both in college and in life.
