Melissa Jones

Melissa joined the GCCS staff as the 6th grade teaching assistant after spending more than 10 years in the Rush-Henrietta School District in a similar role. She has worked with students in kindergarten through 9th grade.  Melissa graduated from RIT with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work and began her career with a focus on the elderly.  After taking off some time to tend to her family, including her husband, two children and aging parents, Melissa’s career focus shifted when she returned to full-time work as a TA.  She takes great pride in helping students grow academically and emotionally.

With her son and daughter now college graduates, Melissa enjoys coaxing her husband to go on nature hikes at the many beautiful parks in our area. In return, he takes her to various concerts to make sure she’s on top of the music scene.  Melissa is a morning person who typically starts her day with a cup of tea and the New York Times crossword puzzle.
