Mrs. Melissa Sweeney
Second and Third Grade Elementary teacher
Background : I grew up in Dryden, New York in an unsaved home. I came to have a
personal relationship with the Lord in 1989 after my brothers introduced the gospel to our
family. I am a mother of six and have been married for 27 years. I knew I wanted to be a
teacher from 1st grade on because of my wonderful 1st grade teacher.
Education: I have a BS Degree in Elementary Education PK-6th grades from SUNY
Geneseo and a MA in Reading from Whitworth College in the state of Washington. I
hold a New York State Permanent Certification in Elementary and Preschool Education
with a concentration in drama and a Washington State Elementary Education Certificate
specializing in Reading.
Experience: I have taught in the public school system in New York State and 2nd and 3rd
grades at Cincinnatus Christian Academy as well as home schooled my own children for
12 years. I have been teaching for a total of 31 years. I have been the girls’ volleyball
coach for 8 years and have directed and assisted with the drama productions. From high school
graduation through graduate school, I worked for Manpower as a secretary, account
manager, and office manager at various businesses in two states. I am completed 6 years of
being the secretary and high school art teacher at C.C.A., and I am now in my first year as the teacher for 2nd & 3rd grades.
There is still no job better than teaching children!
Favorite Verse: Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way that you should
go. I will guide you with my eye.”
