High School Spanish and College Readiness Teacher
Melissa has been teaching Spanish for over nine 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.
When she is not teaching Spanish, Melissa is preparing students for the SAT and ACT, helping students improve reading and writing skills, and booking live music gigs in Asheville.
