Mrs. Marquita R. Williams-Melvin, EdS
My name is Mrs. Marquita Melvin and I would like to take this time to welcome you to Cleveland Central Middle School. Some of you have met me and some of you have not, so I would like to introduce myself. This is my fifth year as a highly-qualified, certified Exceptional Educator. I possess the following credentials: Education Specialist in Special Education, Graduate Certificate in Professional Development, Master of Arts in Education in Special Education, Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Management as well as an Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer Network Technology. For three years, I was employed by Cleveland School District as an Exceptional Education Paraprofessional at Margaret Green Junior High School. Through hard work and dedication, I have become a certified professional in an area that I am very passionate about: “Exceptional Education”. My primary duties as an exceptional education instructor in the self-contained classroom are to work with students who have a wide range of learning, mental, emotional, and physical exceptionalities and adapt general education lessons such reading, writing, math, and living skills to students with mild to moderate, moderate to severe, and severe to profound exceptionalities. I also serve as CCMS Student Council CO-Advisor, member of the CCMS Leadership Team, CCMS Activity Committee chairperson, member of the CCMS Counseling Advisory Council, CCMS TAP (Talk About the Problem) Co-Coordinator, CCMS PTSO Secretary/Teacher Liaison 2019-2020, member of the CCMS Library Literacy Council, and member of the CCMS School Health Council. I am very excited about the 2019-2020 School Year as we continue to embark on a new legacy as the CCMS Wolves! "Gotta love that PURPLE and BLACK. I am a firm believer in the ideal that every child can learn. I have “high expectations of all students”.
