Welcome to the 2019-20 school year. My Name is Melissa Stein. I have been teaching in the Anoka-Hennepin district for 30 years. I have taught grades 1, 2, 3 and 5. This is my 13th year teaching at Oxbow. I earned my Master's Degree in Teacher Leadership from the UofM and enjoy ongoing learning experiences. I feel so blessed to be teaching my favorite grade level, favorite subjects at the best school ever. I share students with Dan Dreifke. I'll be teaching your child Math & Science while Mr. Dreifke teaches them their Reading, Writing and Social Studies.
My husband Mark and I have lived in Brooklyn Park for over 30 years. Our family is growing...Our two oldest sons Tyler(Laura) and Tony(Rachel) were married this past year and both work as engineers. Tanner will be a Freshman at Upper Iowa University majoring in software engineering and playing baseball. We are empty nesters except for our two labs Sadie and Macy. Our family enjoys sports, boating, playing games, vacationing and movies. My absolute favorite thing to do is golf, but look forward to a new favorite hobby in December... being a Grandma💙
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child this year. It is my goal to prepare him/her for middle school while helping him/her grow academically and socially in a physically and emotionally safe setting. Please feel confident knowing that your child is very important to me and I will do my very best to provide him/her with a happy place to learn...A LOT! Please always feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and see their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
