My name is Melissa Pilkington, and I am beginning my 31st year in education! It is a great honor and privilege to teach, nurture and make learning relevant to my children! I love going to school in the mornings because my "job" is one of my joys!
I live in Smithfield (my hometown) with my husband Greg, our youngest daughter, who became engaged in June, and our wonderful puppy Ellie. Our oldest daughter got married last December, and she and her husband are expecting their baby daughter in November! Both of our daughters are nurses! I am truly blessed with my family!

As you are aware, per Governor Cooper's Executive Order, schools will remain closed until May 15. At this time, there is an online repository of student learning opportunities on the website to keep students engaged.
Out of an abundance of caution and to assure the safety of our students, teachers, families and community, Johnston County Ed Foundation has made the very difficult decision to cancel the Showcase of Stars event scheduled for Saturday, March 14. Please click here for more information.
