Mr. Derek M. Mellott

Greetings! Thanks for visiting my web page here at SSS High School. I am serving as Test Coordinator this year. I taught English here at SSS for three years. I also served in the media center as a media specialist. I have been working for Johnston County Public Schools since 2005. I've taught middle and high school, English Language Arts, Social Studies, AVID, and Global Technology (a course I designed myself based on my years as a web designer and developer). 

If you have any questions or would like to contact me, my e-mail is derekmellott@johnston.k12.nc.us.

Have a great day!

  • This year I am serving as Testing Coordinator here at Smithfield Selma High School. If you have any questions about any of the testing (PSAT, ACT, EOC exams), feel free to contact me and I will find an answer for you.
