  • Melissa Eason, Principal

         Hello and welcome to my webpage.  I am the proud Principal of Covington Elementary School.  This is my 7th year at CES and my 5th year as Principal.  I served as Assistant Principal for 2 and 1/2 years prior.  I was a 1st, 2nd and 4th grade teacher before becoming an administrator.  I love being a part of the St. Tammany Parish Public Schools family.  

         I am a graduate of Slidell High School.  I received my Bachelor's Degree from LSU in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology.  I began my professional career as a Truancy Officer representing East St. Tammany Parish.  I later received my Master of Arts in Teaching Degree from Southeastern Louisiana University.  I continued my education and added my +30 certification in Leadership.  I am married and have two smart and handsome boys that attend St. Tammany Parish Schools.  I also have two dogs - Dexter and Chance.  

         I am looking forward to working with the teachers, faculty, staff, students, parents and the community to make CES "The Best School in the Whole Wide World".  Please contact me any time - my door is always open.
