Mrs. Melissa Ward

It seems like just yesterday I was setting up my first classroom, but I've been teaching since 2001! I have always wanted to be a teacher and can't imagine doing anything else. It makes it even more special to be teaching at my alma mater!

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Kris Ward. We have three children (Tyde, Luke, and Lillie) and two dogs. Tyde graduated from Hartselle in 2020 and Luke graduated in 2022. Lillie is a member of the Hartselle Class of 2030. We enjoy watching our children participate in sports and all the things Hartselle has to offer. We are members of First Baptist Church.
