Melissa became a lifelong admirer of Waldorf education after a childhood visit to the Green Meadow Poetry Festival. She came to Green Meadow with a background in publishing and teaching middle and high school English, and has contributed to publications and communications work for WECAN (the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America). She served as Green Meadow’s Director of Admissions for seven years and is thrilled to be returning to teaching. She is advisor to the Class of 2024.

Melissa is certified English 7-12 teacher in NY and NJ and is mentored by John Wulsin and Alix Christofides. Her three sons attend the school.
