Melissa Gordon
Instructional Aide

Personal Profile
I grew up in Midland Park and recently moved to North Haledon with my husband, our two young children and our little dog, Bella. I enjoy traveling to the Jersey shore, vacationing in the Outer Banks and taking a lot of fun day trips with the kids!

Professional Profile
While working to complete my teaching degree at William Paterson University, I substitute taught at Eastern Christian School. I enjoyed working with the students and working with a staff that loves God and love what they were called to do. I was offered an instructional aide position for a public school district and worked there for a couple years until I had my daughter. I felt that God called me back to EC after my second child was born and I was ready to start work again. My husband and I knew this was where we wanted to send our children to school growing up learning more about their Savior.

Philosophical Profile
I worked in the public school district for a couple years as well as the private school district, what sets EC apart is that it’s amazing to see the difference in the environment. Teachers, students, families are able to pray for one another. EC was recognized as a ‘District of Character’ which it truly is. Everyone is kind to one another, truly loving each other, looking after each other and overall happy people. It’s amazing to see so many good-hearted loving people in one place.
