Miss Melissa discovered Montessori Education many years ago when her little brother attended the Marpole Bilingual Montessori Preschool and Kindergarten. She began volunteering and spending time in our classrooms in 2003 which inspired her to go forward and begin her education in the Montessori teaching field.
Miss Melissa graduated from the Western Montessori Teachers College Theory and Practice (birth to six) in 2006 and has taught at the Marpole Bilingual Montessori since. She also holds an Early Childhood Certificate from the Northern Lights College and a Red Cross First Aid Certificate. Miss Melissa brings an inviting presence and invokes a nurturing and independent environment for the children. She has a love for fitness, cooking and traveling which she shares with the children. We value her passion and dedication to our classroom and students.
