Hello! I am Melissa Reid! I teach the self-contained special education class here at Westside! This is my second year as a WES tiger and I love being a part of this community! Before WES I taught in Meridian for 6 years as an Inclusion special education teacher at Southeast Elementary. I graduated from The University of West Alabama with a degree in collaborative special education.
I am married to my college sweetheart Joshua and we have two wild boys Jaxon (5) and Samuel (2). We also have two pup dogs Paisley and Hacker and a fluffy cat named Meowy. Our little family loves to travel and visit new places. Some of our favorites are outside where we can hike, camp, or be near the water! I enjoy reading books, even though I hated reading growing up.
I believe all students have the ability to learn. My goal for myself every year is to ensure that all my students grow academically as well as socially.
