Karen Mellor, Toddler Assistant Teacher (Pink Room)

What is role here at CMS?

I began working at CMS in 2012 as an Early Care Teacher for the Passport Program. This school year, I happily expanded my role at CMS as a Toddler Teaching Assistant in the Pink Room. 

What do you love most about CMS?

I love witnessing the students growth and independence that they gain, as well as their desire to learn more.  I also appreciate all the hard team work that is involved by the teachers, administrators, parents and students in order to make CMS a successful experience. 

When you’re not at CMS, how do you like to spend your time?

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. On those rare alone-time days, I enjoy reading or making fabric collages.
