Mr. Michael Minga
Welcome to the 5th Grade! I am so excited you are joining me on this year's Science Adventure.
I have loved Science since I was in 4th Grade. Mrs. Gail made it so interesting. It spawned a lifelong curiousity and interest in Science that carries on even today.
I am originally from a very small fishing village named Rescue, in Virginia.
I graduated from Smithfield High School in Virginia. I Joined the Navy and served 6 1/2 years on the Aircraft Carrier Independence working on F-14 radar and weapons control systems. When I left the Navy I went to work at Surry Nuclear Power Station as a Instruments and Controls Technician. I was there 9 years. I left to spend more time with my family. I moved to Lumberton, went back to college to get my teaching degree, and taught for 9 years at Long Branch Elementary. I recently transferred to Littlefield Middle to teach 4th grade Math and Science and then to 5th grade Science. I love this grade level and the 5th grade Science Curriculum. I hope you enjoy my class as much as I enjoy teaching it.
NOTE: Please look for Progress Reports. I send them home every 2 weeks.
