Melanie Calcaterra
 
Mrs. Melanie has been a part of the Bright Beginnings family since the preschool opened in 2003, first as a parent, then as a teacher.  This is her 11th year as a staff member at Bright Beginnings. She served as an assistant teacher for 9 years and has spent the last 2 years as a substitute.  Mrs. Melanie’s favorite part of teaching is seeing how much the children grow and develop from the beginning of the year to the end.  They are such blessings from God!  Originally from South Carolina, Mrs. Melanie graduated from Furman University in Greenville, SC, with a degree in Political Science.  She and her husband, Jeff, have lived in Ohio for 22 years and have 3 children.  When not working she enjoys baking, reading, and cheering on her favorite sports teams – the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and the University of South Carolina.  She is also an active volunteer for Shoes4theShoeless in Dayton.

Mrs. Molly has 20+ years of experience working with children.  She started an in-home daycare when her children were small, taught at Oakcreek Preschool in Kettering for 4 years and has been with Bright Beginnings for ten years.  She is also licensed to provide foster care in her home.  Mrs. Molly loves to watch the kids develop throughout the year they are with her.  “These early years in their development are so joyful to watch.  They learn so quickly and absorb so much.  But what I love the most is the hugs they give me.”   Mrs. Molly is good at realizing children grow at their own rate and feels she can bring out the best in each of them during the early years in their life with her patience, compassion and love.  When not teaching, Mrs. Molly is active volunteering at the BOGG Ministries, playing tennis and exercising.  She has also recently begun volunteering at the Hospice of Dayton.  She and her husband and two children have lived in Springboro a little over 20 years.  Mrs. Molly also recently became a grandmother!
