About Me



My name is Melissa Horn. This begins my twentieth year in education. My career began in 1999, in North Carolina, in a tiny town called Kannapolis, a suburb of Charlotte. I taught there for eighteen years as a third and fourth grade teacher as well as an Instructional Coach. 

 Last year my family and I moved to Jacksonville. I was Alimacani's Reading Coach. I have two daughters. Elise is in 4th grade here at Alimacani, and Olivia is a 7th grader at Fletcher Middle. My husband is a Network Engineer for AmeriSource Bergan. We have two dogs and I love going to the beach and going out on the boat. 

I look forward to teaching your child and working with you for the 2018-2019 school year! It is my belief that a successful school year happens with a strong partnerhsip between the teacher, the student, and the parent. Please feel free to reach out at any time to ask questions and seek help.
