Mrs. Melissa Wilcox

Having completed 5 years teaching 1st grade in Fla., my husband, children, and I moved to beautiful Lenoir, NC in 1990.  From flat Florida to the Foothills of NC :)  

I began teaching in Caldwell County Schools in 1991 at Valmead Elementary School.  Despite invitations to transfer to other schools, God has blessed me with the best students, parents, and colleagues in the county, so why would I want to leave?
