She has a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Alberta, and spent two years teaching English as a Second Language in Japan.

She received her Orton-Gillingham Associate Level Certification through Fraser Academy in 2013. Ms. Davda is currently working towards completing her Master’s degree in Special Education.
Ms. Davda’s most rewarding moments are when she sees the “light bulb” of understanding turn on, or when a student who was previously a reluctant reader gains passion and motivation to read. Melanie also enjoys being actively involved in physical education and creative art activities within the school.
In her personal time, Ms. Davda is a Group Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer. She loves hiking and snowshoeing and is an avid reader and world traveler.
