Name: Melinda Looby

Room: Starbursts

Bio: I am so thankful for the opportunity to join the UCCC community and especially the Startbursts! I was born and raised in St. Louis. I have over 20 years of experience working with children and families as a therapist, a parent educator with Parents as Teachers, and as a preschool teacher of 2 and 3 year olds. I love preschool-aged children because of their curiosity, enthusiasm, and excitement for learning! I have a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry from Valparaiso University and a Masters in Social Work from Washington University. I am married and the proud parent of 5 children aged 18 to 10. Thank you for sharing your children with us. They are a pleasure and I look forward to growing and learning with them.
