I’m Melissa Connor and have been a member of the Cascade Heights family for 4 years now. I am excited to be the 2nd grade teacher within this incredible group of educators. I grew up in a small town in Ohio and then attended Eastern Michigan University where I received a bachelors in Fine Arts and Education. I also lived in Colorado for 10 years where I taught Visual Arts and worked as a paraprofessional. I have now been in Oregon for 5 years and absolutely love the Pacific Northwest! I enjoy hiking, camping, water sports, and exercise. I am creative, loud, and motivated.
