Mrs. Valerie Melton
My name is Valerie Melton. I was born and raised in LaGrange, GA. I attended Troy University in Troy, AL, where I met my husband Tyler Melton. We were married in 1998 and moved to Smiths Station. After living here for 19 years this has now become home. We have two daughters Emma and Ella. We currently attend Concord Baptist Church.
I taught Kindergarten/First Grade for 1 year at Waverly Hall Christian Academy. In 1998 I started teaching Kindergarten at Smiths Station Primary School, after 8 years I moved to First Grade where I taught for 4 years. When we became West Smiths Station I asked to move back to Kindergarten, my first love!
