About the Teacher

Hi, my name is Melissa Durham and this is my 13th year teaching Special Education at Hernando Hills. I grew up in Hernando and am a product of the great schools. 


I received my BS in Child Development with a minor in Special Education from Delta State University in 1992. I obtained my teaching certification through the Mississippi MAPQT program. I graduated from Arkansas State University in May 2019 with a Masters in Special Education.  I strive to help my students reach their fullest potential.


On a personal note, I have been happily married to my husband Bennie for nine years and we are the proud parents of two dogs and two cats. My husband and I own Big Muddy Coffee Co. and have proudly won “Best Coffee Shop in DeSoto County” four years in a row. In my few moments of leisure time, I enjoy listening to books on tape and watching Animal Planet and  the ID channel.
