Mrs. Dessa Melia
I am from Cedaredge, Colorado which is a small town nestled in the Grand Mesa on the western side of Colorado. I grew up playing golf and volleyball and loved to go camping and fishing with my family. I attended college at the University of Northern Colorado where I graduated with my bachelors degree in Special Education. I taught my first year in a K-8 school in Greeley, Colorado. My husband and I moved back to the western end of Colorado after that year when he graduated college where I began teaching at a middle school in Fruita, Colorado. My husband, Ben, and I have two pugs, Bronx and Jules, and they keep us on our toes! We are both excited to be here in Alabama and see the different cultures and ways of life here compared to Colorado. I am extremely excited to be a part of the MCES team!
