About Ms. Kovach

My name is Melissa Kovach and I am so excited and honored to be teaching 4nd Grade! This is my 1st year teaching at Akiba. I enjoy guiding students to find their strengths and grow to their full potential!  I look forward to our adventures together this school year. 


I grew up in the Dallas area. I went to Texas A&M-Commerce for my teaching degree and earned an early childhood through 6th-grade teaching certification. I am certified in gifted and talented instruction and I am a strong believer in differentiated instruction. 


A few of my favorite things outside of school...long distance running, spending time with friends and family, and traveling. 


The fastest and preferred way to reach me is at: mkovach@akibaacademy.org. Please allow 24 hours for me to return any email, however, most of the time it will be a lot sooner than that.
