Welcome to Joyful Learning by Melissa Thom
I am Melissa Thom, and I have been in education for 20 years. The first twelve years were spent as a classroom teacher: six years in Phoenix, Arizona and six years in Hartford, Connecticut. Currently, I am starting my 8th year as a middle school teacher librarian in West Hartford, Connecticut. I am a passionate educator who believes that teaching and learning should be joyful. Each day, I strive to help bring about important changes to the educational experience of each child and teacher. There have been many joyful experiences in my formal teaching career. One of my primary goals is to share ideas and strategies that enable learners to also experience joyful learning experiences.
