Melissa Trygg

B.A. (Sociology), Whitman College; M.T., Seattle University

Melissa holds a master’s in teaching from Seattle University and a bachelor’s from Whitman College, where she majored in sociology. Prior to Northwest, she most recently worked at Whitman Middle School as a 6th grade science and health teacher. She has spent time volunteering in Southeast Asia, specifically in Cambodia at a girls’ rescue shelter and as a teacher in Vietnam. Melissa was attracted to Northwest because “Northwest’s vision aligns with everything I stand for as a teacher. I believe a good school does not focus only on teaching to the tests, but rather develops a passion for learning among students and helps them grow into active, responsible citizens of the world.”
