Mrs. Melisa Putney

 Welcome to AVID at Riverwood Middle School! 

The AVID program at Riverwood Middle School is 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. 

Attending college through the Teaching Fellows program, I graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1996 with my bachelor's degree of Science in Elementary Education.  I have previously taught middle school in Stokes County and Forsyth County in North Carolina.  This is my eighth year of teaching in Johnston County.

I am native of Stallings, North Carolina, but I have lived in Clayton for the last fourteen 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!

  • A Commitment to Solidarity, Peace, and Acceptance

    Johnston County Public Schools is in the business of providing a holistic educational experience that affirms and prepares our students for successful lives by teaching not only academic disciplines but how to treat one another. We are aware of recent social media posts and other unacceptable actions that have brought attention to racial and political insensitivity, which this school district does not condone.
