Brian Melendez

Brian Melendez portrait
Jefferson High School
(952) 806-7722

I have been teaching at Jefferson since the fall of 2011 and I am thankful for the opportunity to work in such a great educational environment. Having the privilege of working with young people and helping them realize how science is part of the world around them motivates my love for teaching.

My undergraduate work in physical sciences was completed at Concordia University - Chicago and my MA in international education was completed through Framingham State University - Framingham, MA. I have previously taught science and a variety of other courses at Lutheran West, Detroit; Singapore American School; Lutheran High School of Bloomington, and Escuela Americana, El Salvador.

Besides teaching, I also coach boys' & girls' cross country and boys' distance for the track team at Jefferson. Personal interests include running, basketball, camping, traveling, cooking and eating good food. Our family (including my wife, our 3 children and dog) loves living in Minnesota.
