Melissa Fleck-Aller

Founder, Head of School / Lower Elementary


Melissa’s favorite thing about teaching is witnessing the moments when children begin to synthesize the lessons for themselves and become self-motivated, independent learners. On any given weekday, you will find her engaging with students, parents and teachers, doing everything she can to support Trinity.


Throughout Melissa’s life, she has been immersed in Montessori education. She attended Montessori schools from the age of 2 ½ to 14, and her mother, Rosemary Fleck, was one of the early Montessori teachers who brought the method to the United States in the 1960s.


A Montessori teacher since 1988, Melissa has met some of the most important figures in Montessori education over the years.
