Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Mello

Welcome to first  grade. Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher. I taught my dolls and  children in my neighborhood when I was little.  I started teaching preschool Sunday School class when I was a teenager. Even though I wanted to be a teacher, I didn’t go to college until after my three children were in school. I wanted to be their first teacher. I received my degree in 1994. My first job was teaching second grade at Manning Primary School in Manning, South Carolina. I have been teaching ever since. I have taught in public and private schools in South Carolina, Alabama and New Mexico.  I have been at Greenwood Elementary School since 2012. While at Greenwood, I taught kindergarten, first and second grade. 

I have a BA in Early Childhood Education from USC-Sumter and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Grand Canyon University.
