Mrs. Melissa Novotny

Welcome to 4th Grade! I am Mrs. Novotny.  This is my 17th year teaching here in Butts County.  I love our small town community.  


I was born and raised in South Georgia.  I also lived in Tallahassee, FL prior to moving here to Jackson.


I am married with two children, two dogs, and a cat.  We live here in Jackson.  My husband and I married in Jamaica 18 years ago. My son is in 8th grade this year at Henderson Middle School and my daughter is in 5th grade this year at Stark Elementary.
