Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Melissa Bianco and this will be my 13th year teaching kindergarten at Marshall Elementary, but I have been a part of the Marshall Family since 1999 because all of my children were Marshall Mustangs! Flagstaff is a wonderful place to raise children and to keep families busy. My family includes my husband David, my sons Tristan and Brendan and my grown daughter Emily who currently resides in Michigan. I have worked many jobs since living in Flagstaff such as office manager, Baskin Robbins ice cream extraordinaire, waitress and even attendance secretary, crossing guard and lunch aide at Marshall (long ago) but my most favorite of all time is teaching kindergarten! I am also very excited about this year because it is our 2nd year with our amazing Principal, Mrs. Reasor!
My teaching assistant Rebecca Soto and I have taught together for 12 years and we both are so excited for what this year will bring. We are ready to get this year started and begin all the learning in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, health, music, art, play, pe, violin, yoga, computers, library science, field trips and how to just be 5 years old! Thank you for entrusting your children to us, we promise to make this first year of school a memorable one.
