Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Melanie Youngdahl
Welcome to 7th grade ELA! My name is Melanie Youngdahl and I am so excited to be here at FVMS!
I was born and raised in Indiana, and then moved to Raleigh, NC when I was in middle school. I am a graduate of Wake County Public School, and went on to attend East Carolina University and received my teaching degree in Middle School English Language Arts and Social Studies. I have taught in North Carolina Schools for over 12 years. After several years, I left teaching to stay at home with my own three children. I have a son, two daughters, and two dogs! My husband and I are very busy raising our kids, being active in our church, and enjoying time at our favorite place - Lake Gaston!
I am so excited to return to teaching full-time this year. I look forward to helping your children grow through the middle school years and become independent people!
