I met Melissa through the school system 3 years ago. The past 2 years, Mrs. Artz has been the Inclusion teacher in some of my daughters classes. She transitioned with them from 7th grade and now with them in 8th grade. She goes above and beyond her requirements and is an asset to these students. I have seen her in action with them in school, on field trips and after school. Melissa has built a bond with her students and their parents. She has made lasting impressions on these students with her encouragement, her knowledge and her connection with each child and their skills. She is definitely a Life Changer!
Hi my name is Emma Upton and I was a student of Mrs.Artz. Mrs.Artz was a life changer because she helped me with anything I needed help on.If I went to her with something she would help me and explain any questions I had afterward. Just because she was a teacher she acted like my mom and cared for me as if I were her own. Although I was not her child she loved me like one. I love her sooooo much and I am so proud of her for everything she has accomplished.
Mrs. Artz has been my child’s IEP teacher for the past 2 years. When I first met her I wasn’t sure how dedicated of a teacher she was going to be. But she has been an incredible beacon of light to my child and so many others. She is truly in the right field with the skills she possesses and the passion she has for seeing students succeed. She has taught Sierra so many important things over those 2 years and has become like a family member to us. She goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure her students get what they need to help them learn. She stays after school to help tutor. She always encourages Sierra and always has kind words to say. Mrs. Artz is so much more than a teacher, she is a friend. She has definitely made an impact on my child’s life and the way she sees herself. She has a gift to educate and love these kids that cross her path. Thomas County Middle School is so lucky to have an educator like Mrs. Artz.
Melissa Artz has continually been there for anyone who needs her. I have seen how amazing she is not only with the students but the parents as well. Melissa has had a huge impact in my life. From when in was pregnant till now she has been there for me, and my daughter!
Mrs.artz has always been the best she has always cared for me in my class and always helped me with school in and out of school she has always helped me when I need and and she is the best teacher she supports me I’m and out of school and she is the best teacher
I have known Mrs.Artz for a long time she has helped me from school and things I absolutely didn’t even have a clue how to do I really appreciate all that she has done for me I could not asked for a better teacher and better person than her Thank you so much Artz for being my teacher in the school. Thank you so much
Melissa has definitely been my lifesaver. She started out as my mentor at Thomasville High School when I was going through a very rough patch in my life and has been there for me ever since. Even when I had completely stopped believing in myself she wouldn’t give up on me and still to this day, her love and effort for me has been genuine and unmatched. I consider her family. She helped me mentally get through high school and has always motivated me and helped me find better jobs and discover new ways to better myself. Not once did she ever make me feel like needing her help was an inconvenience. I’ve never met someone that’s always so eager to help out and give back in any way possible. She’s definitely a blessing to myself, her students, the community and anyone she comes in contact with her. I’ll always be grateful for what I went through in high school which led to meeting and getting to know Melissa.
I met Mrs. Artz at Thomasville High School my 11th grade year in 2016-2017. She helped me a lot in Math and Science. I though I was going to fail math but when I met Mrs. Artz I talked to her about my math situation and she stayed after school with me until I fully understood what I was doing and she also broke the problems down and use the hands on method. I love Mrs. Artz and appreciate her for her hard work not just for me but other students that she helped out along the way.
Melissa is the most dedicated teacher I have ever met. Even on her off time, her mind stays on contemplating ways to encourage her students and help them shine for the future. She is such a bright light for the world, and she's always been a person that shows the most level headed empathy towards any situation. Her compassion for being the change she so strongly wants to see, her love for her career (because teaching is definitely NOT just a job for her), and her devotion is the most astounding combination I have ever witnessed from any other teacher. I am so blessed that the universe saw fit for our paths to cross in life and being allowed to watch her love for education flourish not only through her own children, but with any kids that she is in the presence of.
She is the BEST teacher I've ever had. She helped me out when I needed it.
The foregoing article describes, Melissa Artz so well. She is a loving and very compassionate teacher and mother and helpful individual. She is
always going above and beyond what anyone should expect of her.
