Welcome to Begindergarten!

Hello! My name is Melanie Fogarty. I welcome you to our school family. I am excited to be your child's teacher this year and look forward to getting to know you!

I have a degree in Elementary Education from St. Cloud State University and a Master's Degree in Education from St. Mary's University.  I have taught first grade, kindergarten and now Begindergarten.  My husband, Matt, and I have three wonderful sons and we feel so fortunate to be raising them in this great community!

I love teaching Begindergarten! I am passionate about working with young learners each day. It is such a joy for me to help my students become excited about learning and to love school! I strive to make our classroom developmentally appropriate and centered around the needs of each individual child. It is my mission to ensure that all students learn at a high level.

I feel it is very important to have open communication between home and school. Please contact me anytime and know that I am here for you and your child. Thank you for the opportunity to help your child learn ~ it is an honor and privilege for me.
