About Ms. Williams: My name is Melissa Williams - I grew up here in Wake County! I’m 32 years old and my favorite color is: green, and my favorite season is: summer, and my favorite animal is a tie between cats or whales. Those are all important facts to my first graders. Maybe not to adults? Let’s start over - for several years I taught art and did portraits before getting my masters in education and joining WCPSS. I believe in life-long learning, so I still take classes in drawing, martial arts, and cooking - because I’m really awful at cooking.
