Mrs. Melissa Borgos

Hello, my name is Melissa Borgos and this willl be my second year teaching First Grade at Freedom Elementary. I have also taught Kindergarten for 5 years at Freedom. This will be my 7th year in the district. I have been an elementary teacher since 2006. As a military spouse, I've had the opportunity to teach in several states, including Colorado, Texas, Iowa, and Mississippi. My husband and I have two grown kids, Aaron and Sarah. This year will be an exciting time as we prepare for our son Aaron's 2024 wedding. Our daughter Sarah will be a junior at the University of Maryland. When I'm not teaching, I love to read, hike, travel, and have family game nights. My favorite color is purple and I love butterflies. I am looking forward to having your child in my class this year. I know it will be a fabulous school year!
