My name is  Linda Melssen.  I am currently teaching  3rd grade.  I have been teaching for the Minneapolis Public Schools since 1992. All but 3 years of my career have been at Bancroft .  I have taught grades 3,4 and 5 in this building. I have an Elementary Education degree from Saint Cloud State University and Masters Degree in Education from Mankato State University.  When I am not at Bancroft, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, gardening and walking.
