Meet our new Preschool Teacher, Melissa!
Tell us a little bit about you!
I have worked in the Early Childhood field for 27 years. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Early childhood Education.
What brings you to Way to Grow?
What attracted me to Way to Grow is the organization’s value of connecting the parents and the community in their child’s learning and growth.
Where did you work before Way to Grow?
My last position was a Preschool Teacher at an Intergenerational Program. This program allowed memory care residents and the children in the child care center to learn together through activities as well as help one another through art and problem solving.
What excites you most about working at Way to Grow?
I am excited to get to know the families and their children. I am also excited to help the children in the program be successful and ready for their first day of Kindergarten, and meeting all of the people that have a part in making this organization so successful.
What do you do for fun?
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, walking my dog, gardening, reading books, and enjoying the outdoors.
