Mrs. Melissa Reed, Paraprofessional
Melissa is a cheerful woman who says she loves life, her children,
and coming to school each day. She is a paraprofessional who focuses
her efforts on two 7th grade students. Melissa has an Associates
Degree from UNH in Early Childhood Education, and a Montessori
Qualification in Preschool to K. She is pursuing a BA in Special
Education at SNHU. Melissa was a nanny for 10 years and worked at
the Bedford Montessori School for about 12 years. She is in her
fourth year at ECS.
Melissa enjoys working with and being with the kids. She loves to
see children’s faces change as they begin to understand a concept,
and enjoys listening to their stories. Having come from Manchester
schools, Melissa appreciates the small school / small town
atmosphere at ECS. She likes the smaller classes and the fact that
everyone knows one another here. Her three children attend ECS and
Melissa says that, “Everyone is familiar with me and my family.”
Melissa would recommend that parents listen to and encourage their
children. She says, “They’re a really good bunch of kids, with good
heads on their shoulders; parents should stand behind them.” Melissa
lives in Epsom with her children: Tyler, 12; Saige, 9; and Ciena, 7.
They do a lot of “family thing” together including baking, reading,
taking part in sports, and taking dance classes. Melissa does take
time for herself by studying tap and jazz at a local dance studio.
