The Faces of Education Episode 4

Meet Melissa Ann Tortora

Meet the awesome educators at Hudson! We'll be featuring 1 teacher a day with our questions. If you see them in the hall, say hi. Now you know a little more about each other!

What Do You Teach/Do at Hudson?

I teach 9th grade English and game design with JavaScript, advise the National Honor Society chapter and the Video Game Review Club, and facilitate restorative justice among Hudson students.

Why Education? Education because I love books and grammar and want others to love them as much as I do. Also, kids are funny.

Why Hudson/Impression of the Staff?

Hudson because our staff and admin are amazing. It's a positive, motivating, professional, brilliant place to work. I learn so much every day, and have access to many opportunities to better myself as a teacher and a person.

You Hope for the Year?

My hope for the year is for one of our students to win the Games for Social Change competition!
