After completing her degree, Melissa volunteered abroad, working in a Primary School in Uganda. This experience led her to study for a PGCE, specialising in Early Years Education.
Melissa’s first teaching post was in a First School in Bournemouth where she taught for 4 years in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. She gained a wealth of experience during the first four years of teaching, becoming PE leader and gaining a National Professional Qualification in Middle Leadership.
Melissa is passionate about teaching early years and enjoys the challenge of supporting young children to learn new skills. She believes in creating a positive and nurturing learning environment for the children in order for them to develop their independence as life-long learners. Melissa is motivated by the progress the children make both academically and socially. She enjoys the enthusiasm and energy that the children bring in early years.
Melissa has always had a passion for travel so decided to further her career and experience teaching abroad at Dover Court. She is excited to explore Singapore and the surrounding areas. In her spare time she enjoys being active and playing netball.
