Q & A with Mrs. Melder

 

Passion:

I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of children. I love helping students to reach their full potential.

Favorite part of teaching:

I love being able to be a part of the lives of many children. It is always great to see the light bulbs go off and know that you have been a part of educating and enriching them. The things they do and say put a big smile on my face – they truly teach us.

Favorite teaching memory:

I enjoy all of the notes and cards that students write to show their appreciation. It is those little things that mean the most to me!

Favorite thing about St. Martha:

I love that the students and faculty support one another. Everyone always has a smile to share!

My hope for my students:

I hope they know that they are loved and they can do anything they set their minds to each and every day.

Fun fact:

I always enjoy family time – relaxing at home with my husband and two children! I enjoy baking and decorating cakes.

Family is the Best Word
