    Welcome to Fourth Grade

    My name is Janet Melcher and I'm very excited about the upcoming 2021-2022 school year. I am looking forward to exploring distance learning and providing a rewarding and engaging virtual experience for your child. I find it hard to believe that I'm entering my 35th year of teaching.  I spent the first ten years of my career teaching 5th and 6th grade Learning and Emotional Support at Upper Merion Middle School. I have spent the past 25 years teaching fourth grade at Roberts Elementary School.

    I'm dual certified in Elementary Education and Special Education, and I am also certified as a Reading Specialist. I received my B.S. degree in Elementary and Special Education from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. I received my M.ED. from Cabrini College in Wayne, PA. Continuing my professional development is a high priority to me, so I attend conferences and workshops at every opportunity. I've spent four summers attending institutes at Columbia University on the teaching of writing and the teaching of reading.
     I love to read and write in my notebook daily. In my free time, you will find me cooking a special meal for my family and friends, hiking on a nature trail or traveling.
    I love my job and teaching fourth grade is the best! I'm looking forward to a wonderful year.
