Melody Schloss began her teaching career in the first-grade classroom and as a K–6 administrator at Gateway Christian School (St. Louis, MO). After spending some time at home with the three boys born to her and Dr. Jeff Schloss, a Westmont biology professor, they decided they wanted them to attend El Montecito Early School for the beginning years of their education. The couple was impressed with the teachers, the small classrooms, and the quality Christian education they saw there. Melody pursued a teaching position there as well, beginning her career in PreK education more than 30 years ago. Mrs. Schloss appreciates the support, teamwork, and sense of community amongst the staff.
The Preschool Thanksgiving Feast is her favorite Providence tradition.
