Melissa Lucas
2-3 YEAR OLD Assistant TEACHER

Melissa is a preschool teacher currently teaching the older 2's and 3's. But she is no newbie to Fortress; over the years Melissa has volunteered at many Fortress events. She also worked during the summers with her youth group in high school. Fortress has always held a special place in her heart so she is very excited to be here helping our preschool kiddos grow!

You can find Melissa telling everyone that she LOVES her job. After years of odd jobs she has finally found something that she's passionate about. Fortress isn't just a place or kids to her. It's a place where kids connect and grow through a loving and nurturing environment. Seeing these kids every day warms her heart and she can't wait for all the years to come.

Melissa has a beautiful son named Dakota who she loves watching grow up. She was born and raised in Texas and never wants to live anywhere else! She was adopted into a very big family and is the youngest of 6 kids!  Melissa is actually the fourth one in her family to be working at Fortress, so you could say the passion runs in the family. When she isn't at Fortress you can find her at Davids Bridal or hanging out with Dakota!
