Melissa grew up in St. Paul. She now lives in Cottage Grove with her husband and two boys. She enjoys spending time in the outdoors with her family, as well as watching them play multiple sports throughout the year.

As a teacher, I believe in providing structure, routine, nurturing and quality time for each child. My goal throughout the year is to provide children with a solid base of knowledge to help them become successful as a learner. I believe strongly in developmentally appropriate practice and strive to meet children where they are at. I believe ALL children can learn! Kindergarten is where my heart is!
