Melia moved to Richmond last year and joined the RMS staff as a substitute toddler teacher. She earned her Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) Primary diploma from the Montessori Institute of San Diego and her B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley. She also holds her Paralegal Certification from the University of San Diego and worked as a Legal Administrator in an appellate law firm for over 20 years before becoming a Montessori teacher. As a child, she was fortunate to attend a Montessori primary school in San Francisco and is delighted to be working with your children at RMS.
Sally Lan is the assistant teacher for Melia Barbour this year.
