Ms. Michelle Murer

Greetings and thank you for stopping by!

The 2020-2021 school year will mark my 3rd 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 US History 1, US History 2, and College and Career Prep.  This year I will be teaching English 1 and Civics.

Before I came to CHS, I worked at Benson Middle.  There I taught 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.  

In the area of ELA, I love to present different genre to my students.  My goal is to enable students to think outside the box in their thinking and gain their own unique perspective.  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. 

I really enjoy teaching any aspect of  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 present to them to different aspects in 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.
