WELCOME TO MS. ARATA'S TEACHING PAGE!

Hi!  My name is Melissa Arata and this is my fifth year teaching 3rd Grade.  I am an avid traveler, reader, and life long learner!   I am very passionate about teaching, and am excited to be your child's 3rd grade teacher!  I strive to bring knowledge, laughter, and love to our classroom each day.  Creating positive relationships and taking the time to get to know my students and their families is something that is of great importance to me. 

Inspired by:

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” ~Jennifer Dukes Lee
 
 "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has."~Margaret Mead
 
“Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow.” –~Albert Einstein
 

College:
I graduated from CSU Fullerton with a B.A. in Liberal Studies.  I returned a few years later to get my teaching credential and Masters in Education. 

District Tools I Use:

Attendance: 
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App

Report Cards:  
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.

Class Dojo:

Interactive app to keep grownups up to date with what is going on in our class!
