Jefferson Elementary | Second Grade
My name is Melissa Schult. I am originally from Valley, Nebraska and graduated from Douglas County West High School. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Wayne State College in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education.
I am a second grade teacher at Jefferson Elementary here in North Platte. Before teaching at North Platte, I taught two years as a substitute teacher in the Wayne area while attending school. I was also a manager at the Dairy Queen in my hometown for seven years.
I am a huge animal lover. My ever growing animal family currently includes my dog, Rex, my rabbit, Thumper, my horse, Whiskey, and my fish, Skittles. I have strong family ties back home and I am lucky enough to have many great friends within the North Platte School system.
