Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Melanie Venuti
I have taught primary grades at Dilworth for more than 10 years. As a second career teacher, I bring a varied background to the classroom that enables me to give students a firm foundation from which to grow. I believe that all children can be motivated to do their best work every day. To achieve this, I set high expectations, socially and academically, that encourage my students to give their personal best each day. I have training in yoga and mindfulness techniques, and I use these in my classroom daily, to teach students to self-regulate, focus, and problem solve for themselves. As a former professional writer, another passion is teaching young students to love the writing process and respect the art of writing.
