Ms. Melinda Gilbert

 I worked 6 years as an aide in the Jackson County School System with the Multiple Disabilities Unit at Hollywood School. My experiences working with young people in this program are what led me to become a teacher. I taught general ed. and resource classes  Bridgeport Middle for 6 years. The students, parents, faculty, and  staff here at BMS are fantastic. They made me feel like a part of their family.

In 2012, I became a BES Tiger. Here at Bridgeport Elementary I teacher k-4 resource classes. I absolutely love it at BES, working with this age group is an adventure, but a true joy. The hugs from the k-4 kids just make my day.

It's great to be a BES Tiger!!!!!
