Hello there! My name is Mrs. Minor and I am thrilled to have you in my class this year! This is my 9th year to teach at Hernando Hills. I believe I have the very best job in the world! I am married to Henry and we have 3 children- Weston (4), Lewis (almost 2), and Sally (6 months). I received my degree in Elementary Education from Ole Miss- Go Rebs!- in May of 2008.  I love spending time with my family, reading, and cooking. I am excited to spend this year with you!


Mrs. Melanie Cox will be working with your students this year too! This is also her 9th year at Hernando Hills. She is married to Ken and they have one son, Ian (16). She enjoys going to the beach, baking, reading, and watching Ian in his sports activities.



Education Philosophy


“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” – Albert Einstein


I believe that every child can learn and has the potential to succeed. Every student is unique and has his or her own learning style.


I believe that learning should be student-centered, interactive, creative, and engaging.


I believe that my classroom should be a safe, inviting and stimulating environment. My classroom climate will create a family of learners, working together.


As a teacher, I will have high expectations of my students. I will be a role model and a positive example for my students. I must be flexible, and constantly strive to improve my teaching practices to best benefit my students.


I will work together with and be held accountable by my students, parents, colleagues, and administrators.
