Mrs. Melisa Putney

 Welcome to AVID at Smithfield-Selma High School! 

The AVID program at Smithfield-Selma High School provides a unique opportunity for me to help students achieve their dreams.  Being a first-generation college student myself, I can relate to some of the challenges that my students face as they tackle higher level classes, plan for college and careers, and execute their plans to meet their goals. 

Attending college through the Teaching Fellows program, I graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1996 with my bachelor's degree of Arts in Elementary Education.  I have previously taught middle school in Stokes County and Forsyth County in North Carolina.  I have taught middle school science, math and AVID.  This is my ninth year of teaching in Johnston County and my first year as the coordinator at Smithfield-Selma High School.

I am native of Stallings, North Carolina, but I have lived in Clayton for the last fifteen years with my husband (David), our children Sarah, Lauren and Charlie and our dog named Mr. Wiggles.  

In my freetime, I enjoy running and walking on the Neuse River trails and spending time with my family.  I love watching my son play soccer and my daughters participate in piano and band concerts.  We are members of Tippett's Chapel Church in Clayton, and I teach the 4-6 grade Sunday School class there.

I look forward to working with you to achieve great things this year!
