Mrs. Melanie Tingle

I have been an English teacher at Thompson Middle School for 16 years.  I was very involved with the PTO at TMS before I was on faculty, so this school is very important to me.  I have training with A+College Ready, the National Math and Science Initiative, and CollegeBoard, which has prepared me to teach honors English.   

I have been married for thirty-two years to Robby Tingle. I also have two grown daughters and a son-in-law.  In addition, I have a quirky, old dog named Nikki. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, and cooking.  

 We are an Auburn family, so we enjoy anything related to Auburn.  War Eagle!
