Melissa Zwicker has been teaching in private schools at the elementary level for over seven years. Prior to pursuing a career in education, she taught English in South Korea in 2008-2009. After returning home to Nova Scotia, she knew that a teaching career was the path for her and graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Education. She believes that students deserve to be engaged, enthusiastic, and excited about their learning. Active learning is so integral to high academic success and achievement and Mrs. Zwicker strives to make hands-on and project-based learning part of the every day academic experience for her students.
