Welcome aboard! Let's Set Sail to Success.
Hello, my name is Melissa Carollo. This is my first year as a Special Education Elementary Teacher and as an Abney Elementary Lil Spartan. However, I am not new to the classroom. I have been employed with St. Tammany Parish School Board for 5 years as a Special Education Aide in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades at Bayou Woods Elementary. Prior to education, I served 10 years in state government in career counseling and vocational training.
I hold a Master’s Degree in Psychology and an Alternate Education Certification in regular education and special education.
I love to learn and hope to instill that passion for knowledge in every child I teach! My goal for all of my students is to have fun learning in the classroom and outside of the classroom.
I'm looking forward to an exciting year getting to know all about YOU!
