Lincoln Elementary | First Grade
I am Melissa Pratt, first grade teacher at Buffalo Elementary. I was born in Hastings, but I grew up in Houston, Texas. I went to the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Deaf Education. While I was in Lincoln, I met my husband North Platte native, Tom Pratt. After we had both graduated, we married and moved to North Platte.
I believe it is important that children have someone who supports and cares about them in order to learn. When a child has someone who believes in them, then they can believe in themselves.
