I love being a part of the Daves Creek family! I have been teaching for eight years with seven of the years being in third grade. I graduated with my teaching degree and Reading endorsement from Miami Univeristy in Ohio. I received my Masters degree and Math endorsement from GSU and earned my Gifted endorsement from UNG. My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary this summer, June 20th! Reading, working out and running around with our fur babies, Lucy and Jackson, are some of the many activities I enjoy in my free time. I look forward to a great year together in third grade!

In my experience, I have taught third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade. I am a graduate of Toccoa Falls College.

 My name is Melissa Quesada. This is going to be my 10th year teaching; I taught for six years in Gwinnett County and have been at Daves Creek for the past three. In addition to teaching I like most anything having to do with the outdoors, spending time with my husband and our families, and playing with our fur babies. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year please don't hesitate to ask. I am looking forward to an awesome year in 3rd grade!!

I am thrilled to begin the 2016-17 academic year as a Daves Creek Dolphin!  Though new to Forsyth County, I’ve lived and taught in the metro Atlanta area since 1999.  My 18 years as a professional educator encompasses grades K-6 spanning three states including Texas and Louisiana.  Most recently I taught EIP K-5, 1st and 2nd grades in Fulton County and prior to that I taught in Cobb County Schools.  I earned a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education with Middle Grades Certification from Kennesaw State University, my undergraduate teaching credentials from Texas A&M University, and a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Public Relations and Marketing from the University of South Alabama.   I look forward to an AMAZING year in third grade-Oh, the places we will go in our learning endeavors!

I am honored to join the Daves Creek Family.  I recently relocated to Georgia from sunny South Florida.  I am an alumni of Florida Atlantic University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2001. I have 14 years teaching experience with the Palm Beach County School District.  During my time there I earned my National Board Teaching Certification and I also carry an ESOL Endorsement.  I am looking forward to building relationships with my students and fellow teachers for a successful year!!!!
