Mrs. Melissa Tripp

I am excited to be teaching English 8 and English 1 at Kennedy Middle School this year. This is my 11th year at Kennedy and my 23rd year in education.    I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English at Furman University in Greenville, SC.  I then earned my secondary teaching certificate and my Masters of Education in Educational Leadership at Augusta College in Augusta, Georgia.      

I am married to Ryan, and we have three sons.  Our oldest is a senior, our middle son is a junior, and our youngest son is in 8th grade.  Our boys are very active in sports, so we spend most of our free time at the baseball field.   When not at the field, we can be found at the lake or the beach.

I am looking forward to the 2020-2021 school year.  Please feel free to contact me at ior you may reach me by Google Voice at 803-226-7929 if you have any questions.
