About Me

My name is Melinda Sprinkle, and I currently teach United States History 1865-Present to sixth graders at Forest Middle School in Forest, Virginia.  I also teach one sixth grade World Cultures class.  I love teaching history to middle school students, and I love to travel.  I have been to Mexico, Japan, Canada, Germany, the Dominican Republic, and many states throughout America.  My love of history and travel combined with my love of technology make a great mix in the classroom.

Professionally: Personal education is an important part of being a teacher. I currently hold a master’s degree in Instructional Technology from VA. Tech–”Go Hokies!” I also have my National Board Teaching Certificate in Early Adolescence/Social Studies-History.

Personally: I have two children: Ean-7, Eric-1.  They are the love of my life, and we have a lot of fun together as a family.  They both make me laugh, and I would be totally lost without them.  My husband and I were high school sweethearts.  Life never has a dull moment in our home!

Whole Brain Teaching is a new adventure for me as I continuing to learn in the 21st century.  I am excited to be a part of this cohort of educators.  During this class, I want to learn more about Whole Brain Teaching and how to implement it with my classes.  I want to help all of my students become better learners, especially the 'hard to reach,' challenging students.

  1. Hi Melinda,
    I wanted to check with you on the progress of the WBT conference @ Liberty? I've seen a lot of teachers commenting on the forum and wanted to check with you to see if you have contacted them. I have quite a few teachers in my school district. Plus, I will get in contact with the districts around me. We could send out fliers to all the districts in VA! Let's make the FUNTRICITY begin!
