Melissa O'Brien, High School Classroom Teacher for EnglishClassroom Teacher

MEd, Georgia Southern University
BA, Georgia State University

Melissa O’Brien graduated from Georgia State University in 2005 with a BA in secondary English. She later earned her master’s degree in education from Georgia Southern University. She has taught high school English in a Christian school environment since 2005, instructing at every level from 8th–12th grade.

Melissa’s motto is “Eat, Sleep, Read!” She loves to see literature impact students for Christ as their reading takes them to exciting places they never dreamed possible. Her favorite part of teaching is those "light bulb" moments when students "get" it by recognizing something new—whether in literary or spiritual terms!

Melissa lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her young son Jackson, whom she plans to homeschool in the future. He already loves to read!

Melissa has been teaching with the Academy since 2017.
