Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Dameka Watson

I am a native of Sampson County.  I graduated from Union High School in 1993.  I attended and graduated from Fayetteville State University with a Bachelors Degree in English Language & Literature.  I later earned a Master's degree in Education Management from Strayer University.  

As most college graduates, I started a career outside of my degree field in 1998.  I began working at Central Prison in Raleigh as a Correctional Officer.  Despite working outside of my degree field, teaching was imbedded in my heart and during my time there I became a training officer.    In 2007, I was changed my career path and went to Community Corrections as a Probation Parole Officer in Harnett County.  In my years as a Probation Parole Officer I was a mentor and assisted in teaching new programs and policy changes to staff.   In 2014, I was promoted to Probation Parole Field Specialist for the District which included Lee, Harnett, and Johnston Counties.  My primary duty as a Probation Parole Field Specialist was to train new Probation Parole Officers in the District.  

In October 2017 I stepped out on Faith, followed my heart, and began teaching English at Triton High School.  Each semester I strive to not only teach students according to the NC Standard Course of Study for English Language and Literature but I also strive to teach skills such as critical thinking and time management.  

 I am looking forward to building and maintaining a positive and educational relationship with all the students that I encounter in my class and at Triton High School.  


Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
