National Board Certified Teacher
Mrs. Melinda Goodwin
I’ve been teaching at Oak Grove since 1995! This is my 31st year of teaching! I've been a National Board Certified Teacher since 1995. I have a daughter, Audrey, that will be a 10th grader at Middle Creek High School in August--YIKES-- and a husband, Marc, who works at our home looking after our horse, Buckeye, miniature donkey, Pedro, parrot, Pepe and our three dogs, Poncho, Sassy and Mick.
I grew up in southwestern Virginia at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains so I’m a mountain girl but I love the beach! I have my BS from Radford University and my Master's Degree from Campbell University.
I am a life long learner and I do whatever I can to make sure my students learn what they need to but have fun learning it. I taught first grade for 23 years and I’ve been in Kindergarten the last seven. I'm looking forward to teaching your children and watching them grow socially, physically and academically. I also look forward to having you in the classroom to help with this learning. Welcome to Kindergarten! It's going to be a great year!
