Melanie (Mel) is a passionate educator that has had the pleasure of completing a Bachelor of Science degree (general science and ancient Greek studies), Bachelor of Education degree (teachables in mathematics, science and biology) and a Master of Science degree (with focus on water chemistry, animal physiology/biology, animal behaviour, biostatistical analyses, circular statistics, weather patterns, lake systems and in-depth interpretation of data manipulation).
Mel is extremely patient, and loves being challenged. She believes that education and learning can be extremely fun and exciting. Teaching students to understand rather than memorize is Mel’s philosophy. By building a vast knowledge base rather than regurgitating information that has been memorized can be helpful not only in education but as a life skill. Her major goal is to inspire those around her to be successful (in both their personal and academic life) and to guide others to discover their potential to achieve success!
