Melissa Gaeta


Media Center

Hi! This is my 7th year here at TPS and I am looking forward to working with all of our wonderful students!  Before working in the media center, I was an ELL teacher for 2.5 years and a Spanish teacher for 12 years. In my 20 years of teaching, I have taught in Washington, Carroll and Frederick Counties. I earned my bachelor's degree at Frostburg State and my master's in education and library at McDaniel's College.

I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania (Go Pittsburgh!) and love that area. I love reading, swimming, being outside, and spending time with my family; my husband and 2 sons. We also have wonderful pets, our dog, Chloe, 2 guinea pigs, 3 leopard geckos and, our most recent addition: a hedgehog!

I look forward to encouraging a love of reading in the students here at TPS and guiding them through a world of books!
