Hello, my name is Melissa, and I'm a teacher in the Orca room. I started working at UTCS in 1993 after attending the Early Childhood Education program at NSCC. I have always loved taking care of children. Coming from a large family, there were always lots of children of all different ages around, and still are to this day!
In 1992, I got married and joined another large family! We have three children, Cody-18, Kortney-15, and Cory-13. Between our siblings, our children are the youngest of 17 cousins! So with family, school, work and all the children's after-school activities, you could say we have a full schedule. But I wouldn't change a thing. It goes by too fast, so you have to make all the memories you can!
When I find some extra time, I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing baby quilts, organizing (it relaxes me, crazy I know!), camping, skiing, snowboarding, riding bikes, going to drive-in movies and spending time with family and friends.
