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 22nd year of teaching. The 2020-21 school year will be my 13th 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 21 years , 2 daughters, Golden Retriever- Rylee and Maine Coon cat- Oreo. My oldest daughter is a Freshman at UNCW and our youngest daughter will be a 8th 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.

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
As students in grades K-5 begin returning to school, the curbside locations for free meals will now be located at each middle and high school. The curbside meal locations at our elementary schools will end on Friday, Oct. 2 and will open at the middle and high schools on Monday, Oct. 5.
