Assistant Principal

My name is Melissa Shaw.  I am very excited to be an assistant principal at DeSoto Central Primary School!  This will be my first year at DCPS as an assistant principal.  This past year I was assistant principal at Hernando Elementary, and the 4 years prior to that I was an assistant princiapal at Southaven Intermediate School. I have a total of 8 years in DCS.  Before becoming coming to DCP, I taught 1st grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade.  I was also a SPED inclusion teacher and TST chair at the high school level.

My Master's degree is from The University of Mississippi, and my undergraduate degree is from Mississippi University for Women. 

My husband Gordon and I have been married for 16 years.  We have three children.  Our twin daughters, Janna and Julia, are 13 years old and in the 8th grade at Hernando Middle School.  We also have a son Trip, who is 9 years younger than his sisters.  

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions you might have!  I'm looking forward to a great year at DCPS!
