Ms. Melissa Maggiacomo

I have been a teacher at Arthur S. May Elementary for over 20 years!  I went to SUNY Cortland for my undergrad work, and then Mount Saint Mary College for my Master's in Reading and Special Education. This will be my first year teaching Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year, and I am very excited to work with our littlest learners!  Together, we are going to learn so much!  

I grew up in Pleasant Valley, and attended the Arlington school district.  I can still remember so many of my teachers. Their passion and enthusiasm inspired me to become an educator. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my son Cole, and the rest of our family and friends.  I am an aunt to six awesome kids: Caden, Taylor, Dominick, Addision, Julian, and Leo.  Cole and I enjoy playing outside, going for long walks, and exploring new places. During the summer, my favorite place to be is the beach!  There is nothing better than sitting on the sand and splashing around in the waves!!  If you were to look into my beach bag, you would find several books! It's important to always be reading and learning new things....no matter what age you are!
