Director & Preschool Practical Life
Teacher Melissa is a certified Montessori teacher with over 20 years of experience in early childhood education, including more than 11 years at MCH as a Teacher, Director, and MCH parent. In addition to managing the day-to-day activities of our school, she teaches the Practical Life curriculum in our Preschool class. Teacher Melissa especially enjoys helping students grow in their independence. She is the first to celebrate when one of our students triumphantly announces, “I did it myself!” Teacher Melissa loves both kids and animals. She lives in Virginia Beach with her menagerie of girls, dogs, rabbits, chickens, turtles and assorted wildlife rescues.
