Mrs. Melissa Wiant

My name is Melissa Wiant and this is my seventh year teaching fifth grade at Gamewell Elementary. I have taught at GES for a total of 14 years now. My entire teaching career spans 22 years. I have experience in every elementary grade level.  I enjoy reading in my free time and helping with the Battle of Books team.  I also enjoy photography as a hobby. I have been married to my husband Gary for 20 years.  We are both originally from West Virginia, and moved to North Carolina in 1998.  We have 2 children, Brandon and Sarah.  Brandon is a sophomore at Western Carolina University, majoring in mechanical engineering.  He races dirt bikes in his free time and also enjoys mountain biking and road cycling.  Sarah is a freshman at West Caldwell High School.  She is on the cheerleading squad, and also races dirt bikes.  We have 2 cats, and 2 dogs named Cooper and Buddy.  I look forward to a wonderful year!
