Hello, all! My name is Melissa Tidmore, mother of 3 wonderful children and a wife to an awesome husband. I have a degree in Business Administration and my certification in education to teach all subjects grades k-8. I graduated college with the title of “most outstanding student” in the school of business and have always loved school! I worked for 7 years as a public school math and science teacher and 5 more tutoring on an individual and small group basis. My main areas of focus are secondary math, but I have taught all levels. I LOVED teaching in the school system but left the education field to stay home with my children. I have since been homeschooling my own children as well as teaching secondary math in several co-ops in my area. I have taught all grades from K-Algebra 2! I particularly enjoy showing children that subjects such as math are not only applicable but also can be understandable and fun. In class, I often say “math should make sense.” I love seeing the “light-bulb moment” for my students and I hope that they also walk away with an enjoyment that they may not have had before.

In addition to my Business degree, I also have a license as a cosmetologist-although it is more of a hobby these days. For a short while, I was in this field full time and still enjoy it as a hobby. I enjoyed creating off-the-wall styles, worked in runways shows and was in a magazine featuring Avante Garde styles. Though I have all but hung up my shears, you will still see me playing with hair any chance I get.

I was blessed enough to have been raised in a family who loved the Lord. They did their best to follow the commands set forth in Deuteronomy to raise and teach their children in the way of the Lord. Because of this, the Lord was gracious to have saved me at a young age. As I grew older, there were times where the Lord revealed himself in new ways to me such as when I struggled with infertility and when my husband and I lost a child. In his grace, these times strengthened my faith and showed me aspects of him that I have come to treasure such as God as a comforter and a loving father. As a mother, I now try to teach my children in the way that I too was raised. I am trying to instill in them a love for the Lord that they will also hopefully pass down to their own children.

I love being outside with my family. We camp whenever we get a chance and we enjoy hiking and biking! Other hobbies include reading, gardening, doing crafts of all kinds, crochet, hair, and spending time doing anything adventurous. My family likes to remind me that their favorite hobby of mine is baking because they are the beneficiaries.

I truly try to have fun in all that I do and I feel that a smile is never wasted.
