My name is Mary Chapman, and I am a teacher here at St. Mel Preschool. I have been working at St. Mel for about 6 years; 2 years as an Extension Aide and 4 years as a preschool teacher. I graduated from CSU, Sacramento with a B.A. degree in Child Development. I am currently attending National University’s credential program to earn my multiple subject teaching credential. As an alumnus of St. Mel School, I am thrilled I can educate children where I graduated. Every day I come to preschool to teach children about sharing, caring, and spreading God’s love. I come from a very large family, of 6 brothers. It is never dull or boring in my household!
