Michael Melzer

Education Unlimited - Michael Melzer (Instructor)

Michael Melzer — Instructor

Mike is a California native that loves the sunshine, sports, the beach, a good book, and a good history lesson. He is an avid traveler and beach-goer. Born in Bakersfield, CA, Mike found his home on the Central Coast in the lovely town of Atascadero.


After graduating with a B.A. in Political Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Mike lived in Gwangju, South Korea for a year as an English instructor. After that, he and (now) his wife backpacked through Europe on a 5 week adventure. Upon returning home, Mike earned his Single Subject Teaching Credential in Social Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Mike just finished his third year as a Social Studies teacher at Atascadero High School where he teaches US History and AP European History. Along with teaching experience, Mike works with youth outside the classroom as the AHS Interact Club advisor. Mike helps coordinate student community service projects and fundraisers. This year, the club will donate over $1000 to a local Atascadero non-profit organization.

This will be Mike’s first summer teaching with Education Unlimited, and he is incredibly excited for what lies ahead for both him and his students! Mike’s teaching philosophy is student-centered, which means students engage with the curriculum and features creative demonstrations of their learning.
