Mrs. Melissa Zinn

Hi! My name is Melissa Zinn and I am thrilled to be joining the LMS family teaching 8th Grade ELA. I have been married to my husband, Justin, for 14 years. We have four children together, Lilia (12), Cooper (9), Caden (5), and Henleigh (4). I received my graduate teaching certificate from Appalachian State University in 2020 following a four month teaching internship, which I completed here at LMS. I spent the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year subbing exclusively for LMS teachers. I've grown to love this school community and I'm thrilled to (officially!) be a Wildcat! Some of my favorite things are: iced coffee, chocolate-covered everything, traveling, historical fiction, my dog (Harlowe), family golf outings, playing the guitar, binge-watching crime shows with my husband, hearing my kids laugh, and taking long walks around Hobby Lobby.
