Mrs. Melissa Bosman - Second Grade
I’m Melissa Bosman (previously known as Miss Bailey) and this is my third year teaching at STREAM. I am looking forward to another great year teaching 2nd grade!
I was born in Marin County and spent twenty one years there until I moved to Chico to pursue a bachelors in Liberal Studies and a minor in Spanish at Chico State. Once I graduated, I went right into the credential program. I student taught in a Spanish-immersion kindergarten classroom (taught in 90% Spanish and 10% English) at Rosedale Elementary and a fourth grade classroom at Chapman Elementary. I loved teaching both grades, which left me feeling very open to teaching any grade K-5. Since I graduated half-way through the elementary school year, I spent the next few months substituting in different classrooms and schools in Chico. The following August I was hired as a full-time teacher at Paradise Elementary School.
This is now my sixth year teaching and fifth year with 2nd graders. I spent my first year as a 5th grade teacher which was a wonderful year and happily moved to 2nd grade where I have chosen to stay ever since (I LOVE 2nd grade!). My first three years of teaching were all spent at Paradise Elementary School, until our school burned down in the Camp Fire and we moved to Oroville. This was an extremely challenging time in my career, but it opened this new opportunity for me to come to STREAM, which I am very thankful for. It was absolutely amazing to be back in my own classroom and to re-create a place of love, learning, community, and growth.
I live in Chico, where I spend most of my free time outdoors. I love to hike, camp, backpack, and kayak. I’m a member of two women’s hiking groups, where we explore and adventure together all throughout Norcal. I also love cooking, reading, and growing vegetables in my garden. I have a golden retriever named Kinley, who loves to join in on all of my outdoor adventures, and finally married my husband Ryan in April of 2021!
I am so excited for this coming school year, getting to know my students and their families, and (hopefully) a full year of in-person learning!
