Humans of Middle School: Mr. Jason Melgaard

“I was messing around in my father’s office and found a cool black acoustic guitar which my folks had bought for me. And hopping on that ride, getting up close and personal with the guitar is something I’ve never regretted. Like some sorcerer wielding a magic wand, I found power in what I played. Becoming a teacher was never really my plan.  Throughout middle school and high school, I was not a good student.  I was more into daydreaming and not doing my homework. During those college years, I really grew into who I am.  I developed a passion for literature and writing, and found that music and guitar were so intricately entwined into all aspects of my life, I had been working hard and learning, but it never really felt like work.”
