Meet Melissa:

Hello! My name is Melissa McCartney and I am so excited to be a member of the Early Bird team. I am a 1999 graduate of Salem High School so my passion for this area is deeply rooted. My career in early childhood education started right here in this community in 2000. This is not only my career but my passion. I do not look at teaching children as a JOB but as a JOY! That moment when a child accomplishes something for the first time warms my heart. The look upon their little face is priceless!  

I currently hold my Child Development Associate and have well over 120 hours of in-service trainings. I am also certified in CPR, Child Abuse recognition, Communicable disease, and First Aide. I am passionate about teaching young child and helping them develop a sense of independence and pride in education.

I currently reside in Boardman, Ohio with my wonderful son Teagan. He is my pride and joy. We enjoy reading, playing cars, playing outside, and spending time with our family and friends.

I look forward to spending time with your child and helping them discover a brand new world through learning and play! Thank you for the opportunity to do so!
