Private School High School Teacher Melissa Myers

High School Spanish and College Readiness Teacher

Melissa has been teaching Spanish for over twelve years at the college and high school level. While she has happily made Asheville her home since 2011, she originally hails from Ohio, where she earned her BA in Spanish and her MA in Latin American Studies from Ohio University in Athens. She also holds a graduate certificate in Spanish from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. Melissa loves to bring a rich, cultural element into her Spanish classroom, inspired by her time studying and traveling abroad in Spain, Ecuador, Mexico, and Venezuela, and connecting to the rich local heritage of Spanish speakers in the U.S..

Melissa is also our College Readiness instructor, preparing students for the SAT, ACT, and college applications and essay writing.

Melissa used to run her own music booking agency, but since she doesn’t expect large gatherings and live music to return for a little while, she enjoys spending her time outside of school hiking and canoeing around Appalachia, and working on home improvement projects.

Odyssey School is an independent, non-profit school with a focus on whole child, emotionally intelligent, personalized curriculum for students in PreK-12.

Our mission is to prepare students, families, and educators to lead the 21st century with an authentic sense of self.
