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.
