My name is Mrs. Melissa Oliver and this is my twenty- fourth year teaching and my seventeenth year teaching at Richland Elementary! I am a graduate of IUP where I earned a B.S. in Elementary Education and an M.Ed. with a Reading Specialist Certification. In addition, I also completed the ESL Program Specialist Certification through the IU8 in 2011.
My teaching career began at West End Catholic School where I spent 3 years teaching Second Grade. As a graduate of the Conemaugh Township Area School District, I was excited to spend 4 years teaching there in Fourth Grade, Third Grade, and as a Reading Specialist before being hired at Richland as a Reading Specialist. In addition to working as a Title 1 Reading Teacher, I have also worked as a Third Grade Teacher and as an English Language Development Teacher for our students who are English Language Learners.
I live in Richland with my husband, Mike, my two children, Madelyn and Mason, and my dog, Chloe. Madelyn is in her junior year at the University of Pittsburgh. Mason is a junior at RHS. We are all so excited about the 2022-2023 school year and the opportunity to do many of the things we missed during the past two years due to COVID!
