Mrs. Melissa Kolenda


I'm so excited to be teaching Biology & Chemistry 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 two energetic kids, Patrick and Claire, who keep us 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.  I finally got to see Hamilton on Disney Plus.  Of course it made it to the favorites list as well!  Mainly I like to have fun!

My favorite candy is anything chocolate or caramel, but mainly TWIX or KIT KAT bars!
