My name is Melissa Falco. I am originally from Dunkirk, New York which is very close to Buffalo, New York.

I also have a Master's Degree in Middle Grades with a focus in ELA and Social Studies. I taught in Marietta City Schools as a 5th grade teacher for 25 years. This is currently my 30th and final year of teaching. I have 2 children who both attend schools in the district. My son Aison is a senior at DHS and my daughter Audra is an 8th grader at Renfroe Middle. I am loving Decatur and so thankful to be working here.
