How do you move toward your dreams, despite the inevitable insecurity and doubt all humans face?
Melissa Pyrch is here to show us the way. As an educator for more than two decades, Melissa has many experiences, stories, and lessons to share. In her book Beyond the Bell Melissa offers her top 12 lessons to motivate students to rediscover who they are and move them in the direction of their dreams, despite the inevitable insecurity and doubt of adolescence.
She wrote the book to prove to her students that we are all capable of attaining our biggest dreams. For Melissa, that dream was writing a book and becoming a published author. On September 6, 2022, she will see that dream come to fruition – and you can be part of making it possible.
I encourage you to listen, share this episode with a teen, parent, educator, or anyone you know who could benefit from it – and if your heart calls you to – buy the book. Melissa has so much goodness to share with the world. It's an honor we get to be part of her journey, and to be inspired along the way.

Hi! My name is Melissa Pyrch. I am a high school English teacher who loves my students and does whatever it takes to push them to be their best selves. I believe we are ALL capable of going BIG. There is just one key to success: hard work.
I received a BA from SUNY Cortland and was blessed to land my first teaching job at just 22 years old. While teaching full time, I earned a Master of Fine Arts in Writing from Manhattanville College and a Masters in Communication Arts from The College of New Rochelle.
I grew up in Room 207 teaching classics like The Catcher in the Rye, Of Mice and Men, The Crucible, and Julius Caesar, but what always mattered most to me was giving my students the tools to compete on a higher level and sharing my stories of growing up, letting go, and following my heart.
It is my intention to share these stories with all of you in hopes to motivate you to get out of your own way, and let go of whatever is holding you back. We are all on the same road. If you are here, congratulations. Now, put your blinker on, get in the left lane and get ready to wave to your competition as you drive by.
There is much to learn Beyond the Bell. Thanks for stopping by…
