Mr. Todd Menghini
Hello whoever visits my webpage. I have been teaching since 1987 (you can do the math) and have enjoyed working with students for decades. Over these past years, I have taught an array of English classes from remedial middle school reading to dual credit composition classes. I earned a masters in 2013 from Chadron State in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in reading. I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for my undergraduate degree earning a broad field Language Arts endorsement. I grew up in Oshkosh, NE and graduated from Garden County High School in 1982. I coach varsity football and trach for SHS and enjoy most sports. I also enjoy hunting/fishing and playing golf.
