Christian, Melinda--Science (8th)
Teacher Bio
Welcome to my Classroom
Melinda L. Christian (8th grade Science)

I am teaching 8th grade science for the 11th year at Owen Middle School.  I have taught middle school science and/or math for over 15 years. Before moving to Swannanoa in 2004, I taught in Richmond and outside Charlottesville, VA.
I graduated from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA with a major in biology. I received a Masters Degree in Christian Education from the Presbyterian School of Christian Education in Richmond, VA. In 2010, I received National Board Certification in early adolescent science, and in 2011, AIG endorsement. In addition to teaching, I have also served as a Director of Christian Education in several churches, and I worked for many years as a microbiologist for the State of Virginia.
Having grown up in Tampa, FL, I love now living in the mountains. I enjoy hiking, lake kayaking, bicycling, and reading.
Teaching science suits me very well, as I really want students to understand and appreciate the natural world around them. The future of the Earth depends on them!
