Mrs. Melissa Lakins

 Hello!  My name is Melissa Lakins and I am very blessed to continue my teaching career in Prosper here at Rucker Elementary in 3rd Grade!  This will be my 7th year of teaching.  Corpus Christi, TX was my home for most of my life and by the ocean at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi is where I obtained my teaching degree.  After graduating, we relocated to San Antonio, TX where I began my teaching career and enjoyed teaching 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders.


In pursuit of a job advancement in my husband’s career, my family relocated to Prosper.  We have fallen in LOVE with the community!  We are blessed to have three daughters, Kaitlyn (14) Claire (10), and Caroline along with a Yorkie, Miss Molly, and two dwarf hamsters, Thunder and Lilly.

We enjoy cheering on both Kaitlyn and Claire in volleyball, supporting Prosper events, spending time exploring the local sites of Dallas, and spending time with extended family.  


I look forward to continuing my story with you at Rucker this year!!!  Rucker Rocks!!!
