Mrs. Melissa Engels
Hello!  I am Melissa Engels, English teacher.  This is my 16th year of teaching...time really does fly when you are having fun!   
I am a charter member of the Windward High School staff.  After spending the first three years of my career as an 8th grade Language Arts and Drama teacher in Michigan, I have been in the Ferndale School District since 2002.  I have taught a variety of English-related core and elective classes for freshmen through seniors at both FHS and WHS.  I love teaching at WHS because of the chance to interact on a personal level with students and colleagues, integrate curriculum between subject areas, and create lasting connections with the community. 

I live with my husband and two daughters on five acres in the country, which include a barn, cows, and chickens.  Free time doesn't come often since I am usually chauffeuring my girls to their various activities, 
but I still try to find time for pleasure reading and creative writing.  In addition to those hobbies, I enjoy playing piano and scrapbooking.  I also love to watch sports.  I am a die-hard Seattle Mariners fan and have traveled to 30 major league baseball stadiums throughout the United States and Canada.   I also cherish time spent with my family and friends.

NOTE: I do not have any classes scheduled until Fall 2015.  See you in September!
