About Melinda Pedersen

Hi there! I am Melinda. I am an avid reader, writer, teacher, and mom. I am passionate about all things reading, writing, teaching, and inclusive education. This blog is a place where these passions intersect.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing, a Bachelor’s of Education, and a Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Inclusive Education. My dream for the world is to have students love reading and writing as much as I do and to develop the skills that they need to succeed in the future.

I love using art integration and creativity projects in the classroom as much as possible. My goal is to have students learn through singing, acting, drawing, creating, and having fun.

I have taught in many different contexts over the years: as a Teacher on Call, a Grade 6, 7, and 8 classroom teacher, and have worked as a Case Manager/ Inclusion Support Teacher. Throughout all these jobs, I have continued to be inspired with how to make literacy fun. I am excited to share what I have learned with you on this site.
