My name is Mel,
I am the creator and co‑founder of From The Pond.
I am a fully qualified primary school teacher and have been teaching in a
K-2 setting since 2001. I completed a double degree in 2000, specialising in
Early Childhood Education.
For as long as I can remember I have been creating. Blessed with gifted parents, a perfectionist design engineer father and a wonderfully crafty, artistic and creative mother, my childhood was filled with long days of imaginative play and encouragement to create and explore my own abilities and interests.
I have always been interested in creating and teaching. Enter a career choice that saw me in sometimes very poorly resourced situations, and I did what came naturally – I created!
When thirty little faces looked up at me, in a very empty classroom, with all but a few sticks of chalk and a couple of pairs of scissors, I quickly realised I needed some good quality, effective and reasonably priced resources!
Drawing on all my experiences and the interests and talents I have nurtured since childhood, I am having lots of fun designing this very special and growing collection of resources specifically for From the Pond. I originally sold my resources on eBay.
We have grown and developed with the support of hundreds of
school teachers around the country. These teachers have given
me wonderfully positive feedback and encouraged me
to go further with my dreams.
