MEET THE BUCHANAN STAFF
Ms. Haapala - Kindergarten Teacher
Hello! My name is Melissa Haapala and this is my first year at Buchanan. I’m thrilled to be here! I previously have taught preschool, first grade and kindergarten at Perrinville and Cass. I have an adorable golden retriever named Milo. I’m actually in the process of moving which has definitely been an adventure.
A goal I have this year is to take more pictures. I get so caught up in all the fun moments of kindergarten I forget to stop and document them. I'm so happy to be apart of the Buchanan Bears community and look forward to many more years here!
I would describe Buchanan as inviting, collaborative, innovative, fun, and lively!
Did you know that Buchanan does a Holiday Giving Tree each year to help families that need assistance? In order to make it easy and accessible for families to give, we have gone to a Sign Up Genius format.
