Melissa Melton



Welcome to Our Class!

Welcome to Photography and Drawing here at DCHS! My name is Ms. Melissa Melton. This begins my 9th year with DeSoto County Schools but my first here at DCHS. Prior to this year, I worked at Pleasant Hill Elementary for 5 years and at Hernando Middle for 3 years. I am passionate about the arts and look forward to having you in our class and sharing this creative learning experience with you.

Please reach out to me this year if there is anything you have a question about or need help with. 






About the Teacher

I earned my BA from the University of Southern Mississippi and a MA from the University of Memphis.

I am a proud mom to one daughter, Sarah Grace, who just graduated from DCHS this year and is off to begin college soon. We also have one spoiled rotten golden retriever who, if you know us, you probably know him. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with family, my dog, cooking, sewing, theater, and being at the beach whenever possible.
