(610)-205-3700Hello! My name is Melissa Wanamaker and I'm so excited to be your child's Kindergarten Teacher! This will be my first year teaching Kindergarten and i could not be more excited! When i was in elementary school, I actually went to Candlebrook myself. I graduated from Upper Merion in 2008 and went on to study Elementary Education at West Chester University. I am currently working towards my Master's Degree in Social Emotional Learning. It has been an absolute dream to work collaboratively with the amazing faculty at Candlebrook. We really are a family.
My goal is to create safe, fun learning environment and foster a love for learning in each child. I will use my creativity to provide a variety of lessons that will allow for positive student interaction and hands-on learning experiences. We will explore, create and innovate together! I also believe in a strong school-home connection, so please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have at any time.
E-mail is the best way to contact me as I check my e-mail several times a day and throughout the night. My e-mail address is MWanamaker@umasd.org . You can also reach me by phone here at school, but will need to leave a message on voice mail if school is in session. You may also send in a written note. To better ensure that I receive it, please place it in your child’s homework folder. I check those every morning.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year ahead with you and your child. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. No question is too small! Let’s work together to make this a fantastic year!5 FUN FACTS ABOUT MISS WANAMAKER__________________________________________________________________________________1.
