Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, I am Melissa McKinnon. I have been teaching ELA for 14 years. This year, I joined the staff at Brevard Middle School. Prior to that I taught at Grandview Middle School in Hickory, NC. We decided to move to the Sapphire area to be closer to my husband's work. I have two sons who are in the Transylvania County School District. My oldest, Baxter, is a ninth-grader at BHS, and my youngest, Walt, is a fourth-grader at PFE.
I absolutely love teaching language arts, but more importantly I love my students. I am easy to get in contact with if any need arises. Please feel free to touch base with me about any concerns that you have. AND.....I love to have volunteers come help in the classroom-- so consider yourself invited.
