Subjects Taught
5th Grade


I received my Bachelors degree from the University of Mississippi. Hotty Toddy!


This will be my seventh year teaching for Desoto County Schools. This will be my second year teaching at Desoto Central Elementary.  I am so excited to be a part of the DCES family!


My name is Melissa Newsom.  My husbands name is Jason.  We have been married for seven years.  We have two children, Brooklyn (5) and Aiden (2).  We live in Olive Branch.  We both graduated from Desoto County Schools.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, church, and teaching!
