Mrs. Melissa Hill
For those parents and students who don't know me, my name is Melissa Hill and I am one of the Instructional Support teachers at Powhatan Elementary School. I am entering into my 25nd year of teaching. The 2022-23 school year will be my 15th year teaching at Powhatan Elementary School. Before I came to Powhatan, I worked at Rand Road Elementary School in Garner for 8 years . My first year out of college I taught high school at Sanderson High in Raleigh. I have also been a Girl Scout leader for the past 12 years.
I live in Clayton with my husband of 24 years , 2 daughters, Golden Retriever- Rylee and Maine Coon cat- Oreo. My oldest daughter is a Junior at UNCW and our youngest daughter will be a 10 th grader this school year.
It is my goal this year to help your child to be independent, organized and to be successful across all settings.
I am looking forward to a wonderful school year working with your child and family.

North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
