About Mrs. Moore

Hi. My name is Melissa Moore.  I graduated from Southaven High School in 1994. I then attended and graduated from the University of Memphis in 1999.  I began teaching 5th grade Language Arts at Southaven Elementary and taught there for 8 years. This is my 14th year at DeSoto Central Middle and I absolutely love it here.  

My family is very important to me.  My husband, Macon, is the Southaven Police Chief. We have two children. Our daughter, Emma, is 20 and is about to begin her junior year at Ole Miss. Our son, Eli, is 16 and is in 10th grade at DCHS. We attend church at Getwell Church.

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!!
