Melisa Smith


My name is Melisa Smith, and I have worked as an educator for 33 years in Rock Hill Schools.  As a native of Rock Hill, I have loved working with the children and their families in our community.  

My husband, Brian, is a teacher at the Applied Technology Center.  Our daughter, Cathryn, is a senior in college.  We have a new puppy named Bruno (named after Bruno Mars!) who has stolen our hearts!. In my spare time, I love to read mysteries, write, travel, and go to football games!
