"The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer"  Alice Wellington Rollins

My name is Melissa Carpenter.    I am married to William Carpenter. Together we have a blended family of five beautiful young ladies and ten wonderful grandchildren.  I have been in education for 15 years. This is my sixth year at Opp Elementary and I have absolutely loved every minute of it.  I look forward to many more years with the staff and students of Opp City Schools.
