Welcome to Science
Hello, my name is Melissa Smith. I currently teach 7th Grade Life Science, 8th Grade Earth Science, 9th Grade Physical Science, 10th Grade Biology and Chemistry. I graduated from SDSU in 2000 with a BS in Biology and minor in Chemistry. I then took a job as a research scientists at Fort Dodge Animal Heath in Fort Dodge, IA. I worked here until marrying my husband and moving to Minnesota. After moving to Minnesota, I took a job at Fairmont Foods as a Food Safety Manager. I worked here for 9 years. At this time, I enrolled full-time at Minnesota State University to get my teaching licensure. I received my licensure in 5-8 Science, 9-12 Life Sciences, and 9-12 Chemistry. Later I added 9-12 Earth and Space Science to my license. After working as a teacher for a few years, I took the science teaching position at GHEC. This is my first year in the district.
