My name is Melanie Switzer. This is my fourth year in the Northwest Territories and my seventh year teaching. Before coming to Yellowknife, I taught in Victoria, BC for three years at a Montessori School working with preschool and Kindergarten students. I am passionate about Montessori and early years education. This school year, I will be teaching Kindergarten Montessori at NJ Macpherson. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy walking and hiking with my dog and spending time with my husband and friends.
