Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Melissa Chou

Hello! This is my tenth year teaching at Chesterfield Elementary School! I have been a special education teacher for eighteen years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Cornell University. I have a Master's degree in Child Development from Tufts University and a Master's degree in Special Education from Northeastern University. I believe that children learn best when they are partners in their own learning. I believe communication between parents and teachers show children that everyone is invested in their education. My hope is for all my students to become problem-solvers and independent thinkers as well as to love learning. 

Some of my favorites:

Favorite book series: Harry Potter

Favorite color: pink

Favorite candy bar: Twix

Favorite food: sushi

Favorite animal: tiger
