Meet the Teacher: I am your child’s preschool teacher and my name is Melanie Bialet. I am originally from Iowa and moved to Arizona in 2003. I attended the University of Northern Iowa and received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education/Special Education Learning Disabilities K-6th. I also attended Northern Arizona University and received my master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I have taught for 13 years in special education Preschool through 8th grade and one year in Kindergarten. My first love is preschool and I love children so much. They are a ray of sunshine and extremely intelligent. I am looking forward to being your child’s teacher this school year! I have a husband named Carlos, a step-son named Skyler, & a dog named Rufus. We enjoy going to movies, watching Skyler play soccer and flag football, hanging out with our friends and family especially with my mom that lives in Mesa, attending church, camping, fishing, and traveling.
