Melissa Jones
School Staff

Hello! I am Melissa Jones! It is very nice to meet you!  I am the counselor for students with last name Pe-Z. I have been a high school counselor at HoCo for 18 years. I enjoy going on vacation with my family to amusement parks, spending time with friends, working out at OrangeTheory Studio, going to the movies, listening to music, dancing and writing fiction.

I am hoping that we will have a safe, great year filled with fun and new adventures.

Welcome to the Bear Family! SUDA!


Tara Elderkin
School Staff

I am a mom of four awesome children and a wife to my amazing husband, Clark. I have degrees in General Business and Business Management, a Master’s degree in Educational Technology, and a Specialist Degree in Instructional Technology. I have teaching certifications in twelve different areas including Special Education, secondary Mathematics, and Instructional Technology, and safety certifications in first aid, CPR, and AED. 

I am a former band member myself and absolutely love working with the marching band. By day, I am an Interrelated Mathematics teacher at Houston County High School. In the afternoons, evenings, and weekends, I transform into whatever Davis and Ingram need me to be. I am responsible for everything from med forms to attendance to bus rosters to popsicle Thursday. As long as it is possible, wherever the students are, that’s where I will be.
