My name is Melissa Walker-O'Brien, you can call me Miss M, the students have given me that name and I love it!
I have been working at Ascent as a paraeducator in the junior high since May of 2018 and I cannot imagine a better school to work at or more awesome students to work with.
Before working at Ascent, I worked with adults with disabilities at a day program and preschool children in a self contained classroom.
When I'm not at school, I spend time with my family. I love to bake and listen to country music. I got married this summer and between the two of us we have 4 kids: Hailey, William, Jayson and Hunter and one very spoiled cat named Enzo.
I am so excited to be a part of the Ascent team and I feel so lucky to work with such awesome teachers and students!
