Ms. Melanie Jarrell

This is my 12th year as a Special Educator in North Carolina, and my 3rd year in Lincoln County Schools. I teach 8th grade Exceptional Children, Math and ELA. I hold a Bachelor of Arts from Mercer University. I just completed a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction for Special Education from Liberty University in July, 2020, graduating with High Distinction. I will complete a Graduate Certificate in Autism from Liberty in August, 2020. I am certified in all EC Core content areas, as well as in Learning Disabilities, Behavior and Emotional Disorders, and K-12 Reading Specialist. I am in the process of adding K-12 EC General Curriculum and K-6 Elementary Education to my areas of licensure. 

Originally from Georgia, I live in Lincolnton with my father and my little mini Schnauzer rescue dog, JoJo. My favorite activities are camping, fishing, kayaking, photography, history, crafts, baking, and attending Southern gospel music concerts. I love the Georgia Bulldogs!
