Melissa Gonzalez - Lead Teacher - 1st Grade
Melissa was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. Early on in life she realized that her passion was working with children and making a change in their lives. This passion is what ultimately led her to the field of education. She obtained her BA in Liberal Studies, and teaching credential from California State University, Northridge. Melissa joined CWC schools as a founding staff member at CWCSL, serving as a teaching associate. Melissa’s prior experience in the field of education, as well as her experience at CWC SL allowed her to gain a greater appreciation and love for CWC’s mission and values. She is thrilled to return to CWCMV and continue challenging students to be critical thinkers, while making learning fun! During her spare time she enjoys spending time with family, reading, baking, and playing tennis.
