Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Melissa Ferrell
My name is Melissa Ferrell and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Polenta. I have 20+ years of teaching experience and have enjoyed learning with students and teachers over the years. I have taught in schools in North Carolina from the mountains to the beach. I love teaching and learning and am passionate about empowering students to think conceptually and flexibly and to believe in themselves as powerul thinkers!
My Wish List for our class is: crayons, markers, playground equipment, and dry erase markers.
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
