My name is Melissa Lietz. I am beginning my 17th year teaching in Forest Park. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois. My mission as an educator is to motivate, inspire, encourage and support students by providing them with a safe and caring environment. I strive to create a positive and fun classroom where all students can reach their full potential and grow their love of learning! The skills we practice daily in Preschool are the building blocks for your child's future succes in school and life!
