Mrs. Melissa Higgins

My name is Melissa Higgins and I am a special education math teacher.  I currently teaching Algebra 1 and  Geometry.  I earned a BS from Dominican University in Mathematics and my type 09 licsense in 2007.  I earned my masters degree from St. Xavier University in special education in 2010.  I started my teaching career in 2007 and have been at Romeoville High School since 2013.   Previous schools I have taught at are Mount Carmel High School in Chicago and Plano High School in Plano IL.  I am currently one of the NHS sponsers and the Interact Club sponser as well.


Teaching has always been a passion of mine since I was in grammar school playing school with my brother.  I love to see students grow not only in a math class, but outside as well.  In my leisure time I enjoy spending time with my family, especially chasing after my two kids.  I am an avid runner and enjoy going to sport events as well.
