Welcome to kindergarten! Hello, my name is Melissa Alberts and I will be your child's teacher this year! I am so excited and proud to be a member of Big Hollow's awesome kindergarten team! I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child during this wonderful time!
To share a little about myself, I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a degree in Early Childhood Education with a special education endorsement, in 1996. From then, I worked 4 years with 3-5 year old at-risk and special education children. In 2000, my husband Steve and I welcomed my son, and was a stay at home mom for some time.
I currently live in Spring Grove, with my husband, 3 children, and a dog. I enjoy watching my children play sports, running marathons, and doing yard work.
I am so eager about the start of the school year and seeing the bright, enthusiastic faces of your child! If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to say "hi", feel free to contact me at any time!
