Hello! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Melissa Rooney and I am one of the 2nd grade teachers here at Picnic Point Elementary. This is my third year of teaching at Picnic Point and I absolutely love this school and this community! I've been a Washington state certificated teacher since 2016. Previous to elementary school teaching, I taught as a Paraeducator for the Shoreline Public Schools and as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher at a private school. Earlier in my career, I have worked in the business world as well as for a non-profit agency serving runaway and homeless youth.
My credentials include a Masters in Teaching from Seattle University and a Bachelors in Social Work from the University of Washington.
On a personal note, I am the proud mom of a 16-year-old son and a 1-year-old Golden Retriever! I'm also married to a wonderful man, my best friend Dan. We love to hike, bike, and travel when we can. We enjoy taking photos of the beautiful places we visit.
I am truly honored and so thankful to serve the families of the Mukilteo School District as an elementary school teacher.
