Mrs. Melissa Elgin
My name is Mrs. Melissa Elgin and I would like to welcome you to first grade. I have been in education for over 21 years, with this being my fourth year in first grade. For the first 15 years I taught two year preschool, then for two years I was a kindergarten assistant here at Centerville. If my face looks familiar to you I have been around Centerville for the past 17 years either working or volunteering as both my children went through Centerville. (Get involved if you can- it's very rewarding)
I have been married for twenty-two years to my hard working husband Ray, and we have two awesome children Ragen and Tristan. We all love the Atlanta Braves and enjoy watching and going to games together.
I'm excited to begin another year here at Centerville in first grade and feel so grateful for the opportunity to work with the other first grade teachers as well as the rising first graders. If you have any questions or concerns please call, write, or email me. I have a passion for teaching and want you and your child to have a great first grade experience.
