My name is Melinda Kearns and I’d like to welcome you to my class. This will be my first year teaching at Monteleone Junior High School, and I am very much looking forward to the experience. I have taught ELA in grades 7-12 in East Baton Rouge Parish Schools, West Feliciana Parish Schools, and Shelby County Schools in Memphis. I have had the experience of teaching online for the past 12 years and look forward to bringing my knowledge of using technology in learning to the classroom.
I attended Louisiana State University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in English in 1991. In 1992 I completed my alternative certification for teaching secondary English. In 1996 I graduated with my master’s degree in English from Northwestern State University. I am currently working on SPED certification.
I love to read and write and I look forward to sharing this passion with my students. I know the 2017-2018 school year will be awesome!
