Melissa VanSickle

I have lived in Montana nearly all my life. After graduating from Great Falls High, I earned an associate’s degree in bioscience technology from Great Falls College-College of Technology (now known as Great Falls College-MSU), a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from MSU Northern, a K-12 reading endorsement and secondary English endorsement from MSU Northern, and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Lesley University. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher for English instruction. I have taught kindergarten and 5th through 11th grade and adult education in my years of teaching for Great Falls Public Schools. 

I live with my husband, our dog, and two cats. My daughter is off to college at the University of Montana. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, camping, going to concerts, and spending time with my family and friends.

I love working at CCRC. I am continually inspired by my coworkers and my students. As an adult education teacher, I cherish getting to know my students and being a small part of their journey to success.
