• Welcome to our Classroom Website
    My name is Melissa Bjerke and this is my 13th year of teaching and seventh year at Mississippi. I have taught fourth-grade, fifth-grade, and eighth-grade Language Arts.
    I graduated from Bemidji State University with a degree in Elementary Education. My teaching experience motivated me to go back to school and obtain an additional license in English as a Second Langauge (ESL) at Hamline University. I am currently working on my Masters in TESOL at Hamline.
    I have been married for seven years.  My husband, John, and I keep busy at home with our daughters, Aliyah and Samantha, and dog, Juliet.  I spend most of my free time with my family outdoors, walking, and reading.
    Thank you for your support!
