In 1985, I graduated from Weaver High School. I attended Jacksonville State University and graduated with a BS in Education in 1990.  In 1994, I earned my Masters in Education in the area of mild learning handicaps.  Since this time, I have continued my education through seminars and professional development opportunities.


My experience in education has always been in the Oxford City System. I have been teaching special education for the past 24 years.  Oxford is a great place to raise a family. Education is the heart of our community.


Hello! My name is Melissa Love. I love the Oxford City School System. This is my 25th year teaching in this system. There is not another system that compares. Special Education is my heart and soul.
