Miss Melissa


Hello Everyone!

My name is Melissa Banis and I am extremely excited teaching preschool here in Roselle! This will be my 7th year here and we are going to have an exciting year filled with new adventures and discoveries!

I am a graduate from the College of Saint Elizabeth where I obtained my Masters and Bachelors in Special Education, Elementary Education and Communications. I am a firm believe that educators and parents must work together in order for students to be successful in school. I promote family involvement in my class and you are always welcome into your child's classroom at anytime!

In preschool there are a lot of different things that the students will be able to explore and learn. We will be working on a variety of themes/studies throughout the year. Some of the themes are Fall, Balls, Clothes and Buildings. Each of the students will be able to bring their own individual learning styles to life working in one of the centers. Our centers consist of Science, Table Toys, Music, Art, Library, Writing, Dramatic Play, Computer, Blocks, Sand and Water Tables, Quiet Area and a Smartboard.

My wish for all of my students this year is to leave school each day having learned or discovered something new. 
Let's have a fabulous school year!
