Melody received a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in Music from Carson-Newman University and immediately furthered her education at East Tennessee State University with a degree in Dental Hygiene. She and her triplet boys have spent the past 10 years with Classical Conversations where she taught Mock Trial, Latin, Astronomy, Logic, and Short Stories Literature. Having a passion for learning and teaching, Melody is excited to get to teach her most favorite subjects: Music and Biology. The Gentrys live in Lenoir City with sheep, ducks, chickens, dogs, and a ramblin' cat. When they aren't at home, you can find them dressed in 18th century finery at Revolutionary War reenactments or with their dogs hiking around the lake. Melody and her husband, Paul, are also Scout Leaders with a local SeaScout Chapter here in Knoxville.
