Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Melissa Koerner


I was born and raised in the Army! After 20+ years in the Army, my dad retired and moved us to Tallahassee.  I graduated from Lincoln High school and attended UCF.  In 2003, I graduated from the College of Education from the University of Central Florida with my BS degree in Early Childhood Education. 

This is my 17th year of teaching.  Before coming to Buck Lake, I taught for 12 years at Canopy Oaks Elementary. It is great when my job doesn't feel like a job!! I love what I do!!

I have been married for 14 years and have 2 daughters (Ashlyn & Lyla).  Ashlyn is in the 8th grade and Lyla is in 2nd grade here at BLE! 


Things I love:

My family



The Beach


I am very excited to be your child's Kindergarten teacher!
