North Side Teacher
Melissa was drawn to the field of early childhood by the love she had for watching her first daughter learn. She quickly enrolled in Edison State Community College, where she earned an A.A.S. in Early Childhood Development. She went on to earn a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from the University of Cincinnati, and joined our faculty as the Toddler Assistant in 2011. Melissa has been teaching in the North and South Side classrooms since 2013. Melissa loves to run and has successfully completed the Boston Marathon, twice! She enjoys spending time with her husband, Scott, and her daughters. She is a parent to four Overfield alumni: Caitlin, Taylor, Noelle, and Ava.
