Ms. Melissa Helton
I have been teaching at Lillington-Shawtown since 2006. I started teaching first grade and remained there for 4 years. Then I moved to second grade where I have remained. Second grade is a year of growth and discovery that I am grateful to be a part of with my students.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from North Carolina Wesleyan College in May of 1990. I received my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Campbell University in May 2006. I was a member of Delta Kappa Gamma, an honors society for educators, while attending Campbell University.
Some of the committees and teams I have been a part of over the years include Responsiveness to Instruction (RTI), an action research team for the Rehearsed Reading Model, School Improvement Team (SIT), PTO as a parent and a teacher, and the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) team. I am currently the team leader for the second grade team. I currently serve as grade level representative on the MTSS/SIT committee also.
Students learn best when engaged in fun and interesting activities. My classroom has always been a collaborative classroom that incorporates games and fun activities as often as possible. Your child's health and education will be considered in each activity we are able to do this year.
