     My name is Melody Thompson, and I teach 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies.  I am a graduate of the University of Mississippi's School of Education.  I am licensed to teach all subjects in elementary school as well as English and Social Studies in middle and high school.  I also have an endorsement in Library Media.  I have been teaching at Oak Grove for over 15 years.

      At the end of May 16, 2016 I married Steven Thompson.  He moved here from Wyoming 5 years ago and is the meat manager and butcher at Kroger.  We are so incredibly happy with our new life together, but I'm sure it will take years to remember my last name is no longer Lemmon.  After all, I have 32 years of that name to move past.

      I have a beautiful daughter named Brooke that got married in 2013 and works at a local eye clinic.  She is had a baby in October of 2016!  I can hardly believe I'm a grandma for a second time!!  Her husband, Justin, has a daughter named Alyssa, so I am already a "Lolly" to her.  I love my grandblessings, Alyssa and Beau!!!!!

     I also have a son, Clint, that was a sergeant in the Army 82nd Army Airborne out of Fort Bragg.  After serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan, he is finally home for good!  We are all so very proud of his service to our country!  Currently he is working at Whitfield Electric in Hernando.

     My husband, children, and grandchildren bring me great joy and along with my teaching, have completed my life.

         I look forward to teaching your child this year.  I am certain we will all learn many things together this year.  This is a pivotal year for students as they become more independent, responsible, and prepare for middle school next year.  I love reading and hope you take the opportunity to read as a family throughout the coming year.
