About Alphabet Kids
Hello, my name is Melissa. I have worked with students and teachers for over 25 years. The bulk of these years has been spent in schools, where I have worked as a Visual Arts teacher, a classroom teacher, and in a variety of leadership positions - everything from a Curriculum Coordinator to an Acting Principal. Mentoring teachers and designing curriculum has long been a passion of mine. Ensuring opportunities for every child’s success has always been at the heart of what I do, and what I hope I have inspired other educators and parents to do also.
As a mother to five, I now work from my home in Frankston South, in various roles across Education. From the very young, fostering a child’s confidence to express their ideas and imagination, and to realise their artistic intention is of critical importance.
