About Mrs. Moore

Hi. My name is Melissa Moore.  I graduated from Southaven High School in 1994. I cheered competitively for several years while in high school. I then attended and graduated from the University of Memphis in 1999 and was a member of Phi Mu sorority throughout college. I began teaching 5th grade Language Arts at Southaven Elementary. I taught there for 8 years. This is my eleventh year at DeSoto Central Middle and I absolutely love it here. We are a very tight knit group. I also sponsor the dance team at DCHS.

My family is very important to me. I love to spend all my time with them even though our house is rarely quiet and relaxing!!! My husband, Macon, is the Chief Deputy with the Desoto County Sheriff's Department. We have two children. Our daughter, Emma, is 16 and is in 11th grade at DCHS. Our son, Eli, is 12 and is in 6th grade at DCMS. We attend church at Getwell Road United Methodist.

In my spare time I like to run, READ,  ride my bike, shop, and relax. I am so happy to have the opportunity to teach your child. We are going to have a wonderful year together.  If they don't love reading now, don't worry. My goal is to make every student LOVE READING!!
