Melissa Harral

4th Grade Teacher

I am eager to join the Mountainville Academy Fourth grade team this 2022-2023 school year. This is my third year teaching, and first time in fourth grade. I have spent the last two school years teaching math in the 6th grade at a middle school and am so excited to teach the other core subjects to students. I believe that every student can succeed and will as we work together! I actually grew up in the Highland and Alpine area, and I am so glad I get to come here to teach.  I graduated with my associates degree in 2015 from Utah Valley University. I took an 18 month break from school and then continued my education at  BYU Idaho until I got married to my husband in 2018 and moved back to Utah County.  I have spent several years as a private tutor while also completing my Bachelors degree in Elementary education at Utah Valley University in 2020.  Outside of teaching I love spending time with my husband and our two kids, ages 3 and 1 1/2 years old. I enjoy arts and crafts and taking on new challenges with different art mediums. I love the outdoors and the time I get to spend in it with my family. I am so excited to grow with the Mountainville Academy family as I work with students and parents.
