Ms. Melissa Doenges

Hello Early Childhood East Hub families! I’m so happy to be a part of your child's life and education. 

I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota Master's Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education programs. I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and American Indian Studies, also from the University of Minnesota. Through my studies I have found when you follow student interests it makes for the most meaningful learning. 

This is my sixth year teaching at St. Paul Public Schools and I am proud to be a part of the PreK team. Early Childhood Education is my lifelong passion and working with young learners every day feels like a gift.
