Melissa Parent is in her third year teaching preschool and prekindergarten at Holy Family. She enjoys that Holy Family is a great environment with a supportive staff and wonderful families. In the preschool classroom she celebrates the Love of God and guides young learners to integrate that into their daily lives. Ms. Melissa, as her students call her, tries to instill the love of learning by making everyday a new and fun adventure. She moved to Seattle five years ago with her husband and two daughters. They enjoy travel and all things outdoors. They work with the Saint Luke Foundation in Haiti. They recently returned from their fifth service trip to Haiti and we cannot wait to return. Ms. Melissa is originally from Colorado and attended the University of Notre Dame. Go Irish!
