Hello! My name is Melissa Huckaby and this is my 8th year teaching Affective Needs, and my 5th year here at Leroy Elementary School as the primary Affective Needs teacher. I am a Colorado native, and I graduated from The University of Northern Colorado in 2011 with my Bachelor's Degree in Special Education. I began my teaching career in an Affective Needs classroom in Jefferson County for 3 years before moving to Leroy. In 2015 I earned my Master's Degree in Psychology. I enjoy helping my students acheive their full potential in both academic and social learning. In my spare time outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and especially my two dogs, Roxanne & Lilian. I am excited to be a part of the wonderful Leroy staff and community again this year!
