Melissa Bell began her teaching career in 1991, and has taught on the grammar, middle, high school, and college levels. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master of Arts in English Language and Literature from Mississippi College. She became a member of the ECCS faculty in 2004. She and her husband, Wally, have three children–Bonnie, Drury, and Charlie–all of whom attend ECCS. The Bells attend Evangel Church.

When she is not in the classroom or principal’s office, Mrs. Bell enjoys scrapbooking and reading. Her favorite scripture is Ecclesiastes 5:18-19, “Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him—for this is his lot. Moreover, when God gives any man…his lot and enables him to enjoy it, to accept his lot and be happy in his work—this is a gift of God.”

“Coming to Evangel was a life-changing move for me and my family. At Evangel, we are confident that our children are being taught in a manner that reinforces our Christian values and our philosophy of education. Also at Evangel, I have found a work environment that is unlike any other I have ever experienced. The level of support that teachers are afforded here by our Principal, our Board, and our parents, along with the absolute integrity and order with which all matters are approached, make ECCS a truly wonderful place to teach.”
