Ms. Melinda Farmer

My name is Melinda Farmer. I am the 5th grade science teacher at Zeb Vance Elementary School. This is my 14th year at Zeb Vance and my 18th in education. I received my Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and my lateral entry teaching certification by attending classes through North Carolina Central University. I love soccer, fishing, going to the beach, putting together jigsaw puzzles and reading. Sharks are my favorite animal and I love everything about the ocean. Every year is an exciting challenge for me to get students to love and understand the world of science as much as I do. I look forward to a great year with each and every one of my 5th grade students!
