Mrs. Melinda Briggs, Cross-Categorical Itinerant SPED Aide


Hi, I'm Ms. Melinda Briggs. This is my 2nd year here at ACES as a Cross-Categorical Itinerant SPED Aide.  I love and appreciate all the staff and students here and love the positive atmosphere that I feel here. I started working in the Mat Su School District in 1986 and since that time I've been a FT SPED Aide, School & Instructional Aide and Secretary. I've also worked in the home health care/ medical area. When I wasn't working full time, I kept very busy substituting as a Teacher, SPED Aide or Safety Security Monitor.  In the summer, I'm a trail guide and horse trainer at Celebration Ranch in Salcha for Kirsten Morlan, helping her care for her 24+ horses and 50-100 farm animals.  I enjoy learning, helping students succeed, having family fun activities with my 8 grandkids and 18 great grandkids and their families. I love many adventures, including but not limited to: horseback riding, ATV trips, hiking, camping, traveling, volunteering at Faith-based conferences/activities, short-term Mission trips, attending church and any Biblical fellowship time and activities.  I thank God for the opportunities He's given me to be a blessing to others, wherever I go.
