Ms. Melissa Billings

Welcome to the new school year! My name is Melissa Billings. This is my 18th year as a teacher. I spent 10 years working in St. John Parish and have been at Norco Elementary since 2015. This is my 17h year as a first grade teacher. I attended Southeastern Louisiana University and received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Master's degree in Educational Leadership. I have a one year old baby girl, born in April 2022. I have enjoyed spending time at home with her. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
