Hi! My name is Rabina Bissessar and this is my second year teaching at Clayton Middle School. I was born and raised in New York City. I graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida and Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY. I moved to North Carolina in 2018. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 3 children who attend Johnston County Public Schools. When I am not working, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and creating amazing memories with my family. I look forward to sharing my love for reading with my students. Go Eagles!
