FAmily and consumer WELCOME TO THE 

2023-2024 School Year!

All information will be located on Google Classroom!

I am looking forward to a fun and purposeful learning experience this school year. I plan on using google classroom as the best way to get information for any homework or if absent and we will discuss that information the first week of school. This is more then a classroom, this is a classhome where everyone is welcomed and will be cared for.

 Mrs. Mottinger


 Hi, my name is Melissa Mottinger and I am your FACS teacher here at Ranch View Middle school. I have been married for 17 years, and we have 3 amazing kids-  a 11th grade son at Thunderridge, a 10th grade son at Thunderridge and a 7th grader here at Ranch View.  

I started teaching in 1996 in Fairfax, VA in  a 3 grade classroom.  I taught 3rd grade in VA for 6 years before moving to Boulder, Colorado!  I taught in Boulder for 6 more years (2nd and 3rd grade) before staying home with my kids and subbing in DCSD. This is my 3rd year teaching FACS here at Ranch View! 

I love to bake, cook and watch my kids do all their sports! I'm so excited to teach at Ranch View this year! Please always reach out to me with any questions!  We are on the same time and I look forward to working with you and your middle schooler!
