Mrs. Melissa Paul
Hello Grizzly Families! This is my 20th year teaching and my 17th in Special Education. I've been a TVUSD teacher for the last 14 years. I have taught everything from PreK to graduating seniors at TVHS (Go Bears!) I've been married to my husband, Barry, for the last 19 years and we have 5 busy kids. Our oldest, Carly, is a Freshman at Cal State San Marcos and is in pre-nursing. Braeden is a Junior at GOHS and plays Varsity football for the Wolfpack. Ethan is a Freshman at GOHS and also plays football for GOHS. Gavin is a 5th grader at TLES and plays tackle football and travel baseball. Our youngest, Brooklyn, is a 4th grader at TLES and she is waiting patiently for me to sign her up for something! We are rather busy and you will likely see me at a ball field around town since they are all doing these sports year round! I am originally from Northern California and am a Bay Area fan. My favorite sports teams are the SF Giants, SF 49ers, SJ Sharks and of course the Warriors! In my spare time, I love to read, relax, go to the beach and travel. I look forward to having a wonderful year at GMS! Go Grizzlies!
