Melissa Mares joined the Colorado Children’s Campaign this week as our first Early Childhood Policy Fellow. In this role, she supports policy analysis, coalition development, community engagement and advocacy to advance the Children’s Campaign’s early childhood agenda. Prior to joining the Children’s Campaign, she taught kindergarten at a Spanish immersion school in Eugene, Oregon. She loved teaching and supporting the socio-emotional development of her students, trying to do her part to ensure that they could grow up with the necessary tools to become resilient self-advocates and good friends. Before teaching, she worked in constituent services in the Denver office of U.S. Sen. Mark Udall. Read more about Melissa here.
