Geography, History and Technology Teacher
Melissa was born in Bristol (UK) and graduated in 1998 from Reading University with a B.A. (Hons) degree in History. After graduating, she worked as a library assistant at the University of the West of England before deciding to move to Italy in 2000 to experience life in a different country.
Melissa then taught English in primary, middle and secondary schools and in various companies in the Padua area, alongside six years in the role of Marketing Assistant for a company based near Padua.
She joined our school in 2012 as a History and Geography teacher and subsequently added Technology to the subjects she teaches.
Melissa really enjoys teaching this age group, encouraging collaborative, active and enquiry based learning and problem-solving in her pupils. She has two young children who keep her busy when not teaching!
