Hi, my name is Miss Melina and I am delighted to be the Assistant Owl Teacher!
I grew up in Maine. I spent many of my childhood days in ballet class and started assistant teaching dance classes by the age of 8! I fell in love with teaching children and volunteered for my church’s nursery every Sunday. In my teenage years, I volunteered as a literacy tutor and dance teacher for AmeriCorps. As a young adult, I spent time traveling and moving around the States, from NYC to Hawaii, where I gained experience working at a daycare, as a childcare provider, a Christmas pageant director, and nanny.
I am passionate about creativity, movement, and patient individualized care for each child and am excited to bring my experience and passions to the classroom!
I love to fill my free time tap dancing, knitting, crocheting, sewing, and playing sports! The ocean is my paradise and I love to swim, kayak, and surf with my husband!
This is my first year with All Saints Preschool and I am thrilled to be back in the classroom! I can’t wait to bring my joy, arts, patience, and inclusivity to the class to inspire my students!
