In addition to a lifelong passion for teaching and leading, Melissa Carroll loves a surprise snow day. Given an unanticipated day off, Melissa would enjoy exercising, baking something delicious, taking an afternoon nap, and finishing with a really good book or movie. She also love weekend trips to travel with her husband to Boston, MA and Storrs, CT to visit her children.
