Ms. Melissa Tuck

Hello everyone and welcome to Health-  My name is Melissa Dunn Tuck and I have been teaching at the Junior High for 17 years.  I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Health Promotions, and received my Masters in Health Education from The University of Alabama at Birmingham.  I am proud to mention that I started the 7th Grade Dance Team here at the Junior High, and even though I have currently hung up my coaching hat after coaching both cheer and dance for over 23 years, I still enjoy choreographing for teams around the Birmingham area.  I have been dancing since the age of 2, with training in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and dance team, and was able to use my training while working for Universal Dance Association (UDA), and performing and coaching for the Golden Girls Dance Team at UAB.  I have a huge passion for anything pertaining to health and dance, and look forward to a great year!
