Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Melissa Moreno

AP/DC Admin & Curriculum Support Specialist

My goal is to hopefully help you become more passionate (in a positive way) about math and its applications to the real world, but if not passionate, at least appreciative. I love working with students and families around the world sharing my love for Christ, and I look forward to working with you and your family this year!

I started teaching in the face to face classroom in 1995 and have been in online education since 2005. I also know what it is like to be an online student in math and all of the struggles that you will face. I have been there, too, as a graduate student.
