"Real success is finding  your lifework in the work that you love."

~ David McCullough

My name is Melissa Ward. I graduated from college in March 1996 and began my teaching career in Elmore County in August 1996. The 2017-2018 school year begins my 21st year teaching and my 14th year at Holtville Middle School. 

I serve as the Title I Coordinator for HMS. I teach 2 elective classes, Introduction to Yearbook Journalism and Writer's Workshop. Writer's Workshop is a 8th Pilot ELA class HMS is implementing this year. I enjoy teaching and believe that all students can learn.  My personal mission in life is to treat every child that I work with the way that I would want my children treated.
