I taught 2nd Grade for two years in Halls, Tennessee. This will be my fourth year teaching, and my second year teaching first grade at Hernando Elementary.


  Welcome to a new school year! My name is Mrs. Melyssa Horton, and this is my second year to teach at Hernando Elementary School. I taught second grade in Tennessee for two years after college, but I grew up in Hernando and graduated from Hernando High School. I even went to school here, at Hernando Elementary. I am married to Clint Horton, and we just had a baby girl in August named Madelynn.

  This year in first grade, your child will be encouraged to become better readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and citizens. I am excited to be a part of your child’s learning experience.

  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. You may contact me through email at I will usually respond to emails, but not during school hours, and not after 7pm. You can access my website from the school’s homepage. You can sign up for my REMIND text messages by texting @a67ghe to 81010. You can even call the school and leave me a voicemail. For transportation changes, please be sure to call the school.

  I look forward to a wonderful year with your child.

  -Mrs. Melyssa Horton
