Melissa Wheeler is a second-grade teacher at Ruby Major Elementary in Hermitage, Davidson County.
Students say she makes classroom learning fun. Even now when they’re not in school, she checks in with them weekly, and they discuss things like caterpillars using their critical thinking skills.
So, we salute Melissa Wheeler as our News 2 Educator of the Week.
