Melissa Ricci comes to the MCNS directorship after being a part of the community for the last five years as both a parent and a teacher. To our MCNS families, she is most commonly known as our PreK teacher; a role she will continue to lead as she takes on the new director position. She aims to create an environment where children learn through hands on activities while preparing for the full day kindergarten experience they will step into. It is her belief that the school experience should be a bridge from home to school working together to give little learners a sense of confidence as they enter the next level of their education. She is incredibly excited that she has been given the opportunity to work with and support the amazing MCNS teaching staff to provide your families with the best start to their school years.
