Mrs. Melissa Byrd


Hey, I'm Mrs. Byrd! I teach 6th grade ELA and Social Studies here at Four Oaks Middle. Born and raised in New York City, I came to North Carolina to be a part of the Wolfpack- GO PACK! I fell in love with the Tarheel state and my new home here at FOMS. This is my seventh year as a Cardinal and although it is off to a unqiue start, I am confident that 2020-2021 will be excellent! I look forward to an exciting new year with students, parents and the staff at FOMS!
