Mrs. Melissa Thompson

Hello! I'm Mrs. Thompson, the Reading Coach at Madison Elementary School. As a proud Huntsville native, I am deeply committed to preparing our students for successful careers in our community and on a global scale. Being part of the MES family for the past five years has been an incredible experience, and I am thrilled to continue working with our dedicated teachers, brilliant students, and supportive families this year!

Lifelong learning holds a special place in my heart, and I've been actively pursuing personal and professional growth. In May, I successfully completed an Administration Certification Program with UAB, and I am currently engaged in a Doctorate program at The University of West Alabama. This newfound knowledge has allowed me to provide even better support to our students and teachers within the district, and I'm excited to extend this support to our parents and the wider community.

As a mom myself, I understand the significance of strong parent-school relationships in fostering the growth and development of children. That's why I live by the motto, "Let me know how I can help!" I'm always here to support and collaborate with all stakeholders in our students' education journey.

Looking forward to an amazing year filled with learning, growth, and meaningful connections!
