Mrs. Melissa Kolenda


I'm so excited to be teaching Biology this year at MAC.  I graduated from Texas A&M with a BS in Biology in December 2005.  I started teaching here at MAC in January of 2006 and have had a blast ever since.  I'm a North East grad from Madison and I'm happy to finally call myself a Brahma!  My wonderful husband, Warren, and I have a very energetic one year old, Patrick, and one more on the way.  Baby girl Kolenda is due in October!  Needless to say we are very busy!

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, camping, and just having fun.  I love going to the beach and anything that is in the ocean.  I'm addicted to the Discovery Channel and I want to travel the world.  I also really enjoy going to the theater.  "Wicked" is probably my favorite musical, but "Fiddler on the Roof" and "Phantom of the Opera" follow close behind.  Mainly I like to have fun!

My favorite candy is anything chocolate, but mainly TWIX!
