Children's Place Staff
- Toddler Educator
Hello, I’m Melinda Ferry and I am proud to be a part of the teaching staff at UMD Children’s Place and look forward to continued work with the toddlers, their families, and the team!
I graduated from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education, licensed to teach birth to sixth grade, kindergarten, pre-school, and family and parent education. I also hold an Early Childhood Special Education licensure from UMD. I have experience working with a variety of ages of learners and abilities, and enjoy working with young children the most.
My husband Scott and I have two grown children. We enjoy spending time with our family and our one year old grandson. In my free time, I enjoy flower and vegetable gardening,
spending time outdoors, and taking short and long trips.
