Mel Wehrkamp

I am the owner and teacher at Little Wings. I opened this program with the hope to connect with and encourage as many children as possible. I love kids and want to see them succeed!


I graduated from Southeast Technical Institute in 2011. After finding my passion to work with kids I started right away on educating myself and now have received my CDA credential. I am CPR/First Aid/AED certified also. 

I love to teach children! I have worked and volunteered in after school programs and daycares since high school. I have two daughters and a son. My husband and I have been married since 2015. We love to get outdoors and keep our bodies and minds healthy! I also adore animals and love to stay active with sports of any kind. 

I hope to live out my passion and change the lives of every child I work with. I want to encourage them to try new things, make friendships, fail and get back up again. I can't wait to meet your child and begin a new adventure this school year! 




 Little Wings is looking for experienced, loving teachers!  We are always looking to hire the best!  We currently have 1 teacher sub/as needed position we are looking to hire. Hours are not guaranteed but would be able to move into a part- time position in the future.

A job with us will mean more than just a paycheck. We truly help each member grow, professionally and personally. We treat each other with respect and want to ensure their happiness! Working with kids is rewarding, but also tiring- and we want our team to know that we CARE about each other's mental health and will do everything in our power to help each other! A teammate MUST have a love and passion to help kids grow, patience to teach, and be a team player!
