Welcome to Mrs. Melingonis' page!
My name is Mrs. Lisa Melingonis and I teach sixth grade social studies on the Emerald team at Har-Bur Middle School. I have been teaching for ten years in Region 10, most of which was spent as a fifth grade teacher. I am looking forward to a new year as a sixth grade teacher!
In sixth grade, students will explore the development of ancient civilizations in Asia, Africa and Europe. Their course of study will provide them with the major themes of history and social science concepts necessary to gain a cultural perspective of the world. Students will be encouraged to discover how people lived in the ancient times, and how their descendants live in these present times, and to inquire into the impact these cultures have had on their own lives and origins.
Our Ancient Civilization units of study are:
Mesopotamia, the Fertile Crescent, Israel
I believe that with a positive attitude and effort, we can all be successful!
I strongly encourage parents to review the student planner on a daily basis to ensure assignments are completed and to keep up on current team events. I will also use the student planner to write notes home if necessary. I can be reached by email for further correspondence.
I have been married to Stephen Melingonis for 9 years and we welcomed our first child, Hayden, on June 12, 2008 and our second son, Greysen on April 18, 2010. We have a dog, a Weimaraner named Vander and twin black cats, named Luca and Nico. I grew up and currently live in Bristol. I went to college at the University of Rhode Island where I received my degree in Elementary Education and English. I received my Master's Degree from Walden University in Elementary Reading and Literacy. Some of my hobbies include reading, swimming, painting, and cooking.
