Mrs. Melissa Little

Hi!  My name is Mrs. Little and I am so excited to be part of the Rosa Family!  Most importantly, I am excited to meet you all!  It's going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us.  I want to learn ALL about you, but first I'm going to tell you a few things about me.


I was born and raised in the small town of Southold, New York which is about 12 hours from Concord . I went to college at Mount Saint Mary College in NY, and then taught at Stella Maris Catholic School for 4 years while earning my Masters degree in Special Education.  In 2001, I moved to Kannapolis where I started at Shady Brook, moved to KIS for three years, and then returned to Shady Brook in 2008 until this 2017 when I decided to move to PSRES.  In May 2016, I completed my Add-On Licensure for School Administration at Gardner Webb University.


 I am married and have two children, Patrick (15) and Delaney (10).   We also welcomed our dog, Kuechly to our family in January 2016 and our rescue Daisy in February 2019.  We LOVE Panther Football and when we are not in school I enjoy watching my children play sports, traveling, reading, spending time with friends and family.  I am also very active in my church, Kimball Lutheran Church.
