Please check school and district websites often for updates.


My name is Melissa Cruse and I am so excited to be here at River Oaks Middle School as an ESOL teacher!! I have taught 28 years and love teaching AND learning.

I have a 15- year- old son, Mason, and an adorable dog named Bucky!! In my free time, I like to kayak and go to the beach.
