Mrs. Melissa Riecks

Welcome to my page! 

My name is Melissa Riecks and I teach sophomore English. I also coach girls basketball and slam poetry. 

About me: I was born in Cape Town, South Africa and raised in Pagosa Springs, CO. I graduated in 2011 with a degree in ENglish Education from Fort Lewis College. I'm happily married with two furry children: Chaucer (dog) and Ember (cat). My husband teaches at Russell Middle Schol and both of my parents work at Palmer High School--education is all in the family!
