Greetings!! I am Mrs. Melissa Kish and I teach 5th and 6th grade English here at Our Lady of the Lake School. I graduated from Cleveland State University with a Bachelor’s degree, specializing in grades 4-9, Language Arts and Social Studies. My husband Brian and I currently live in Painesville with our twins, Austin and Aubree. Besides teaching, I love to spend time with my family and friends, as well as cheering on our favorite football team, the Cleveland Browns!!
As an educator, I believe that teaching develops life-long learners. I believe our students are our future, and that each of our students has the potential to bring something special to the world. As a teacher, I have the opportunity each day to impact students’ lives in a positive way, helping to shape students both academically and morally. It is with the formed partnership with parents that we can support our children in their learning and search for knowledge.
Teaching at Our Lady of the Lake School has been a very welcoming experience. The students are dedicated, with the motivation to learn. I have found both the faculty and staff to very accommodating. I can’t thank the families of Our Lady of the Lake enough for their outpouring of kindness and support. Our Lady of the Lake School exhibits that genuine community feel, in which I am blessed to be a part of. Thank you and God bless!!
