Mrs. Dessa Melia

Hello Madison Hornets! My name is Dessa Melia and I am a special education collaborative teacher! I have been teaching collaborative special education classes for 7 years. I was born and raised in Cedaredge, Colorado, attended the University of Northern Colorado for my undergraduate (B.A in Special Education) as well as my masters (M.A. of Educational Leadership), and then married my high school sweetheart in 2018. We moved to Alabama in 2020 and have loved the change of scenery and everything that Huntsville and Madison have offered us! We have a boy, Calvin, who is 18 months old and has more energy than the sun.. he keeps us on our toes :) 


I'm looking forward to a great year as a Hornet!
