Hello, my name is Melissa Haltom. This will be my seventeenth year teaching at Swain Elementary.  I taught one year in First grade, eleven in Pre-K, three in Kindergarten and this is my second year teaching Second grade.   I taught Physical Education in Floyd County for two years, before coming to Swain. I am not new to the education field, but each year holds new rewards and challenges that make each year different. I look forward to a wonderful and exciting year of teaching your child.

I received my undergraduate degree from Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama in Physical Education. After teaching P.E., in Floyd County, I went back to school and received my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education from Berry College. I graduated with my Specialist degree from Piedmont College in May 2012.

I live in Rome, with my husband, Jamey and four children. My son, Alex, is 21 years old and he is be attending Georgia Highlands. My daughter ,Allie, is 18 years old and she will be a freshman at Jacksonville State University. I have two step sons, Branden,12, and Eddie, 10. I look forward to working as a team to ensure that your child has a successful Second grade year in school.
