Hello, I’m Michelle Dailey and I’ve been teaching in early childhood education for six years. I began with Melrose as a classroom teacher; but as an artist, it was a natural progression for me to move into the role of studio teacher when it became available. I’m a wife and mother of two daughters ages 9 and 13. My spare time involves my love of all things art and music; and my true passion - spreading that love of art as a local, Jacksonville mixed media artist.
Lead Pre-K Teacher
I grew up in a small town in Colorado and joined the Navy right out of high school. I served for 5 years where I met and married my husband. I graduated in 2008 from UNF with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, and spent a few years in the Veterinary field.. I knew I wanted to be involved in my children’s education so I joined Melrose as part of their inaugural staff in 2014. I have taught a variety of ages at Melrose, with Pre-K being the most recent. We have two kids now and spend our time camping, traveling, and everything outdoors! I love my job and all the children I have the pleasure of teaching!
