Melissa Willoughby


Hello! My name is Melissa Willoughby, better known as Miss Melissa around the district. I graduated with my Masters in Occupational Therapy in May of 2018. I provide occupational therapy services to students at Williams Early Childhood Center, East Elementary, Piney Ridge Center, and Waynesville High School. I love to keep my OT sessions interactive and engaging and I follow the rule that "active kids make the best learners". Please see the "OT Resources" tab for fun fine motor, handwriting, and movement activities you can try with your child at home!
