Ms. Michelle Murer
Greetings and thank you for stopping by!
The 2019-2020 school year will mark my 2nd year at Clayton High School. CHS is a great place to teach, and I am excited for up and coming school year. Last year I taught English 1 and Public Speaking. This year I will be teaching American History I and II.
I have been in Johnston County for 9 years: CHS - 2 years; and Benson Middle School - 5 years in 6th-grade social studies and ELA, one year in 8th-grade social studies, and one year in 7th-grade social studies. Before coming to Johnston County, I worked in Wake County for 9 years at an elementary school setting; 7 years in 5th-grade and 2 years in 4th. There, I taught all subjects as well as electives in history, and assorted creative arts.
I really enjoy teaching the social studies curriculum and enabling students the opportunity of expanding themselves. Now, I have some students who are not fond of any form of social studies. My goal is to expose them to different aspects history and hopefully spark more of a tolerance. :) History is not as boring as they think. By having a better understanding of the past, we can improve our future.
We do a lot of writing in my room. By having opportunities to express and explain themselves with words versus emoji or textese students learn true communication. If an individual can communicate in written form, they can usually communicate orally (that is the ELA teacher in me).
