Preschool

Melissa Stark – Director, Head Four Year Old Teacher

"I have been working at Fellowship Wesleyan Preschool since 2002. I have worked many years with children ranging in age 3 to 18 and have found four years olds to be the perfect age. Their little minds are truly like sponges and it is amazing what they absorb each preschool day. Their sense of humor is the one thing we have in common. Laughter makes play and learning fun. I look forward to each year getting these “little people” ready to begin their journey into Kindergarten. When I am not at preschool, I spend my time reading, bike riding, cross stitching and enjoying time with my family."

Beth Forbes – Head Teacher, Three Year Olds

"I have been teaching the three year olds at Fellowship Wesleyan Preschool since September 2005. Prior to that I was the four year old teacher at St. John’s Lutheran in West Seneca until relocating to Erie, PA. There I designed and started a Special Education Intervention Program at two parochial elementary schools (St. John the Baptist and St. Stanislaus). My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Buffalo State College and a Master’s Degree in Special Education from Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA. Teaching at Fellowship Wesleyan has been a very fulfilling experience. It is such a pleasure to teach children at this age because they are so excited to learn. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, baking, attending my children’s sporting events, and getting together with family and friends."

"I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Roberts Wesleyan College. I have been employed as a teacher’s assistant since 2006 and am also employed as a part-time bookkeeper for Fellowship Wesleyan Church. I have three children who attended Fellowship Wesleyan Preschool years earlier and I am privileged to contribute to a child’s early learning experience."
