River Road Middle School

Rocket Cheering

My name is Melitta Smith and I am the head coach for the River Road Rocket Cheerleaders!!! Cheerleading has been an intricate part of my life and has, in many ways, shaped who I am.

I began coaching in 1999 and have been doing it ever since! For 14 years I, along with my husband, owned and operated a competitive cheer and tumbling gym. I have extensive training and knowledge of the sport, with certifications that include: AACCA, USASF (Levels 1-5), NCSSE, and Gymnastics Certification.

When I am not teaching cheerleading, I am also a 6th grade Science Teacher at RRMS. I have 4 kids (Wesley, Jazmyne, Jozey, & Jezlyn) and enjoy camping and cooking when I find some free time!
