Welcome to Stage For Learning!
Featuring Mrs. Shaw's Shining Stars
Home / Welcome Behind The Scenes Shining Stars Director's Corner Now Showing Website Awards


Hi!  My name is Melissa Shaw.  Welcome to our second grade classroom website.  It is my hope that this website will improve communication between home and school as well as serve as a resource for other educators.  Classroom pictures and projects have been added to the Now Showing section. Please feel free to check back often and invite others to see what exciting things are happening with Mrs. Shaw's Shining Stars.

Parents: Welcome to our school family! I am excited to be your child's teacher this year and look forward to getting to know you. Please visit the Behind the Scenes section if you are looking for information about our classroom. I update on a regular basis, so check back for changes.

Students:  Congratulations on making the cut for Shaw's Shining Stars where we are setting the stage for learning daily.  Check out the Shining Stars section of the website to meet the cast or for links to many educational games.  Throughout the school year this area will be updated frequently as we start new units of study.

Educators:  Welcome! Please visit the Director's Corner section to find many different ideas and resources for your classroom.   You will also find links to websites that were created by wonderful teachers who inspire me on a daily basis.  In the teacher download section you will find teacher created resources for second and third grade MacMillan McGraw Hill Florida Treasures Reading series. Win my "Stage for Learning Class Act" web award.

This website is a work in progress.  If you have any comments or suggestions, I am happy to hear them.  Web links change often... please email Mrs. Shaw if you find one that doesn't work properly.

Meet the Teacher

My name is Melissa Shaw and I am currently a second grade teacher at Ortona Elementary School.  I am fortunate to call Ortona my home for the past fifteen years.  In my sixteen years in teaching, my experience has ranged from kindergarten through third grade.  I hold a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Elementary Education which I received from the University of Florida.  Go Gators! Currently I am taking classes with the University of West Florida in Educational Leadership.

I am married to a wonderful man and have three beautiful children that keep me on my toes.  I am part of a close knit family and enjoy spending time with my parents and sister.   

If you need to get in touch with me, email is best; however, I am also available by school phone.  I look forward to a great school year!
