Degrees and Certifications:
BA Elementary Education
Hello, my name is Melissa Coley Swinson. This is my 23rd year of teaching. My school career began at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School in kindergarten as a student. I graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School in 1994, GO TIGERS, and attended Pfeiffer University where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education in 1998. My teaching career began at Winecoff Elementary in 3rd Grade where I taught 2 years. When I first returned to Mt. Pleasant Elementary I taught 4th Grade and then moved back to 3rd. I love 3rd Grade and would not want to teach any other grade level. When I am not teaching I love spending time with my wonderful husband Aaron and our two beautiful daughters, Elisabeth and Emma Grace. Elisabeth is a freshman at North Carolina State University (Go Pack) and Emma Grace is in 8th Grade at MPMS. I love my job and look forward to each year as the chance to make a difference in the lives of my students.
