Melanie Caraway Teacher

I graduated from UTA (summa cum laude). I taught Kindergarten for 8 years at Roquemore Elementary in North Arlington. I have been teaching Special Ed at Ashworth for the last 4 years. I helped start the ABLE program at Ashworth in 2013.

I am a member of the PBIS committee, teacher focus group, and Trunk or Treat committee. I have served 2 years as a PTA Co-Vice President.

I was a 2015 -2016 AWARE award nominee. I have been a recipient of the Target Field trip grant for the last 4 years. We have visited Fort Worth Zoo, Studio Movie Grill, Dallas World Aquarium and Chuck E. Cheese with this grant funding. We have started a parent support group, S.T.A.R.T., to provide our parents with information and help. We recognize World Autism Awareness day here at Ashworth where the staff wears t-shirts promoting Autism Awareness.

I have been married for 22 years. I have 2 daughters in college.  One is studying to become a Nurse, and the other wants to be a Coach/Teacher.
