Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Prohoniak

Hi, My name is Melanie Prohoniak,

Degree and experience:

I am a graduate of UNC-Greensboro. I graduated in 2010 with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a teaching license in Birth-Kindergarten. I spent 5 years teaching for Asheboro City Schools. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with ACS. This is my second year at FLW. I have moved up to Kindergarten and am loving every minute of it.

I enjoy reading, going to movies and singing. But most of all, I love spending time with my family. 

Educational philosophy:
I believe that every child can learn. My goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and engaging environment for my students. I feel that students should be encouraged to do their best and enjoy their time at school.

Welcome Back!

We have a lot of learning ahead of us in Kindergarten. Below are a few of the key concepts we will be covering with your children in the First Quarter!
