Bolinger, Melinda (ELA - 6)

fire pit



My name is Melinda Bolinger.  This will be my 19th year in the classroom, and my second year as a Rocket.  I am a recent transplant from South Florida, having moved here two years ago. In South Florida, I taught 2nd through 7th grade over the course of 16 years.  I love middle school students!
I have two adult daughters and a cat named Abby; she is the queen of our home.  I love traveling, exploring my new state, hiking, music, and I am a confirmed foodie.  I am so excited to be here at ACRMS and teaching 7th grade ELA.  We will be reading some wonderful novels and poems as well as plenty of nonfiction.  We will also write often, as well as engage in weekly Socratic seminars.
