Melissa Gualdron has had the pleasure of working at Orozco Academy for the past 6 years. She was hired as a teacher assistant, transitioned into assistant clerk and will soon receive her M.A.T in Early Childhood Education. Working at Orozco has exposed her to the rich culture and art that surrounds Pilsen, has motivated her to grow as an artist and given her the opportunity to combine her love of children and passion for art.
Ms. Gualdron received her Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems and Minor in Fine Arts from DePaul University. In June she will receive her Master in the Art of Teaching from National Louis University. She has been the proud after-school art teacher of Munchkin Art and Artcetera these past six years. In her free time, she loves spending time with her family and friends, traveling and exploring different parts of the world, painting, doing Bikram yoga, visiting the Art Institute and other museums, dining out, shopping and watching her beloved Cubs and Bears.
