Melissa is a primary and early childhood trained teacher. She live in West Auckland, and loves to get out and exploring and enjoying the West Auckland beaches. She has most recently been teaching at an early childhood centre in East Auckland in a four to five year old’s classroom, but is looking forward to getting back into a mixed age setting, learning with and from the children.

In the weekend, she values time with my family and friends, and enjoys cooking, reading and creative pursuits such as scrapbooking and DIY. She is hugely passionate about her role as an educator, and really values being a teacher at the very start of children’s learning and educational journey. She loves to explore with and learn from children’s ideas and creativity.
