Ms. Melissa

Hello! My name is Melissa Villareal and I am beyond excited to be a part of KUCI this school year.  I was born and raised in Albuquerque, my husband is from Espanola.  I have three adult children and one grand baby. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Special Education both from UNM-Go LOBOS! I taught special education for 11 years with Bernalillo Public schools, ran my own home daycare for 6 years and once my own children were all in school full-time I taught preschool for 20 years with APS.  I retired in July 2021.  I took a year off and now I am ready to jump back into teaching the best age group ever! I am truly honored to be a part of KUCI and look forward to sharing my love for Jesus with this community.
