Mrs. Melissa Kirsh

Dear Families,

Hello and welcome to our first grade class! My name is Mrs. Kirsh and I am the special education teacher in first grade. This is currently my sixth year teaching at Columbus School! I have taught self contained for two years, fifth grade for three years and this is my first year teaching first grade. I am so excited!  I have the pleasure of working with my amazing colleague, Ms. Gruber! We make one fantastic team! 

Outside of work I enjoy watching movies, reading, working out and going for walks and spending time with my family! I am also a HUGE animal lover! 

I believe communication is extremely important in the success of your child's education. If you have any questions, concerns or if there is anything I can help you with, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Lets make this the best year yet!

Mrs. Kirsh
