Mrs. Melany Blinson

  Hi, I am a native of North Carolina and attended Guilford College in Greensboro NC.  I have been teaching for 20 years and have been  a second grade teacher at River Dell Elementary for 14 years.

  In my personal life, I am married and have two children. I have lived in Johnston county for 18 years. I am an NC State fan through the good and the bad. I love to read and walk in my spare time.

  Professionally, my philosophy is to instill  love of learning in every student and create an atmosphere in my room where all students feel successful and loved.
