Ms. Melissa Olivares
Hello! My name is Melissa Olivares and I am the ESL teacher at W.R. Odell Primary. I spend half of my time at W.R. Odell Primary and the other half at Winecoff Elementary.
This is my first year with Cabarrus County Schools but not my first year teaching. Most of my career has been spent working with multilingual students, families, and ESL programs.
My classroom is welcoming to all learners, honors cultural and linguistic diversity, and centers on mastering objectives set by the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. When you visit my classroom, you will see content lessons that engage students in the four domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
When I am not working, I love spending time with my family. We enjoy traveling internationally and when we cannot, we enjoy the beaches and mountains in the southern part of the United States.
