I was a daily and weekly newspaper reporter, photographer and editor before becoming a journalism, photography and English teacher. (You can download my free journalism-related publications and curriculum on issuu.com/robmelt and scribd.com/robmelt.) I graduated with a bachelor's degree in journalism from University of Oregon. I manage the Northwest Scholastic Press website, serve on the NWSP board of directors as chair, and served as executive director in 2011-12. I am a past president and board member of Oregon Journalism Education Association. I also served on the Journalism Education Association Board of Directors as JEA's vice-president, and as the 1987 Portland convention chair.
