Melissa Cox

Welcome to Daniel Pratt!

My name is Melissa Cox and I am excited to be teaching first grade at Daniel Pratt Elementary School!  I moved to Prattville as an Air Force brat back in junior high.  After graduating from Prattville High School (GO LIONS!) in 1996, I attended Troy State University (now Troy University) and graduated in 2000.  The next week, I married my husband, David, and moved to Columbus, Georgia.  We came back the next year and settled in to "The Preferred Community" for good.  Right in the middle of graduate school, we had the first of two daughters, Hannah, in 2005.  Emma joined us in 2007.  Hannah is a sophomore at Prattville High School, and Emma is in 8th grade at Prattville Junior High School.  Both of our girls attended 1st through 6th grade at Daniel Pratt.  I love teaching first grade and look forward to what I will learn from the students every day.
