Hi! I'm Melissa Thacher. I grew up in Texas and Virginia, but my husband is a Raleigh native. I graduated from James Madison University and UNC Charlotte. I have a master's degree in counseling and am a National Board Certified Teacher in School Counseling. I have been a school counselor since 2003 and have at RES since 2016.
I have two children, Pierce and Carlie, and a puppy named Ruby. In my free time, I love going to food festivals, boating, and reading.
I think Rolesville is a great place to learn because our focus is always on what is best for children. Our staff continues to come up with new and engaging ways to reach our students.
I chose to work at Rolesville Elementary because our school is a tight-knit community with a small town feel. As large as Wake County has gotten, it is comforting to be in a place where people know and care about each other.
Mrs. Thacher is on campus Monday, Wednesday and alternating Fridays.
