Miss Melissa Karnazes
You can just call me Miss K. I am the proud 4th, and 5th grade Education Specialist at Circle View Elementary. Teaching is my true calling in life so I am so pleased to be here at Circle View with amazing teachers, staff, parents, and the unbelievable students I work with everyday!
I am originally from Chicago, IL; which will tell you that I am a true Blackhawks and bears fan and could eat pizza almost every day of the week! ⊕ I moved to California to attend Concordia University Irvine where I received my Bachelors Degree in English and my Education Specialist Teaching Credential. I am lucky enough to call Huntington Beach home now and on the weekends you are most likely to find me: at doggy beach with my roommate, her labradoodle (Lando) and a good book, drinking tea after a good yoga session, or at Super Mex chowing down on a good burrito. Since I live where I work I love attending my students extracurricular events, if I am invited I try my best to attend.
My personal philosophy on teaching exist in a structured and caring classroom.♥ I implement individualized and whole group behavior management systems. The students are constantly moving in my room; on any given day you might find us sitting at tables, on the floor, on top of desks, or even sitting on our chairs upside down. My instruction is driven by the Common Core Standards and is supported through district approved curriculum. I try my best to use up to date technology including supplemental educational websites, and applications.
The most important thing to know about me is that my job is what I love doing- so I've never gone to work a day in my life! If you or your student need anything I am here and ready to support!
Thanks for stopping by,
Miss Melissa Karnazes
