Melissa Murrell's Bio
Hi, my name is Melissa Murrell. I will be an Advantage Arts Academy the Librarian working in the "Book Hive." I love outside the box thinking and am excited to guide Advantage Arts Academy’s students towards becoming actively engaged readers. I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, beginning my school days at Bella Vista Elementary in Cottonwood Heights. My best days were when I would ride my bike to Whitmore Library, walk the multi-colored path inside the “Rainbow Room” of the children’s area to the perfect reading spot, and then take time to practice the piano in one of their many music rooms before going back home. Growing up, much of my free time was spent singing and growing my love for the theater. I participated in multiple school, church, & community choirs and community theater. I graduated, an Honor Society Member, from Brookwood HS in Snellville, GA in 1994.
Although music is most definitely a part of my soul, my family will always be my #1 loves, I have been married to my husband, Roger, for 25 years. We have been Mom & Dad to our four children for 23 years. We’ve lived in Atlanta-GA, Cincinnati-OH, and for the last 8 years, Las Vegas-NV. We are looking forward to our newest adventure in Utah and at Advantage Arts Academy. Please drop by the Bee Hive Library anytime to check out the apiary of books, as well as, the fun we are “hive”ing in reading.
