Hello! My name is Mrs. Melissa Handorf and I have been teaching for 8 years at St. Joseph Catholic School. I have 4 children that attend St. Joseph School. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire.
I grew up in Tomah, WI and met my husband, in college. We moved to Colorado for a couple of years and then decided to move back to this area to be closer to family as our own family began to grow. When our eldest child was ready for school, St. Joseph was the school we were looking for to help foster God’s love and strong academics for our children.
My most favorite hobbies are scrapbooking, visiting with friends and family, playing sports like volleyball or running. I also enjoy games like Scrabble or other word games.
I love working with the children each day. I enjoy finding fun ways to teach and learn with them. Helping students succeed and teaching them how learn from their mistakes, while being respectful, responsible students is rewarding. It is a blessing to work at this school with such a supportive staff and wonderful caring families.
