Mrs. Melissa Cosby

Hello! I am excited to introduce myself as one of the third grade teachers here at Hughes Elementary.  My name is Melissa Cosby.  I joined the Hughes third grade team last year and previously taught third, fourth, and fifth grade in Honolulu, Hawai’i.  I look forward to continuing this chapter in my life with my new students, their families, and the Hughes community.

I was born and raised in Rowlett, Texas.  In 2009, I moved to the Tennessee/Kentucky state line where I completed my student teaching in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and earned my Bachelors Degree at Austin Peay State University in Tennessee.  I then spent three and a half years on the beautiful island of Oahu before moving here. In my free time I love to run, spend time with my husband and daughter, and play with my two dogs.

I believe in all of my students and hold high expectations for everyone.  I absolutely love teaching! I work hard to encourage my students to love learning and look forward to coming to school each day. My students will leave third grade with a wealth of knowledge and the GRIT necessary to be successful. Our room will be full of love, laughter, and a lot of learning this year.
