Hello students and parents. I'm Mrs. Melissa Ricondo and I've been teaching at Gus Garcia Middle School for 6 years. I'm married and have two teenage sons. I'm originally from Florida but the U.S. Air Force brought me to San Antonio several times so I decided to retire here and call it home. When I'm not working, I love to watch movies, read novels, go to the gym, go to the coast and spend time with my family. I have a BS in Human Resource Management and will graduate in the summer 2013 with my masters degree in Reading Literacy from UTSA. I also have one dog, a Rottweiler named Daisy.
