About your teacher...

Welcome back Tigers, my name is Mrs. Mellinger. I look forward to a great and productive 2022-2023 school year. I hope that my class will inspire your children in seeing the great value in history and in being "brave, not perfect".

I received my bachelor's degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara in Ethnic Studies/History and subsequently received my Single Subject Teaching Credential, Masters in Education with an emphasis in Technology & Educational Leadership and Administrative Credential from San Diego State University.

My husband a native San Diegan, and I an immigrant from the Philippines and subsequently growing up in Pasadena, enjoy living in San Diego. We are avid sports fans and have supported student athletes and scholarships at San Diego State University for over 20 years.

When I'm not at Snapdragon Stadium or Viejas Arena cheering on our beloved Aztecs, I enjoy spending time with my family including our latest addition and teacher's pet Zuma, running, boxing, bike riding, art, photography and collecting shoes.

I look forward to meeting all of you and maintaining open lines of communication throughout the school year. Go Aztecs!
