Mrs. Melanie Tingle
I have been an English teacher at Thompson Middle School for 13 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 Pre-AP English.
I have been married for twenty-nine 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!
