Hello third graders and parents! My name is Melinda Goken and I am excited to be your child’s third grade teacher. I am truly looking forward to a great year and am excited about working with all of you!
I grew up in Spokane, Washington, and served 24 years in the Air Force after graduating from high school. I am married to Tim Goken, and we have four grown children and two dogs. My husband and I moved to Georgia a little over a year ago, after living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for fourteen years. I enjoy hiking, camping, boating, and yoga.
I attended college at University of Phoenix where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. I earned my Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Wayland Baptist University.
