Ms. Melissa Lemonds
I am so excited to continue my teaching career at Sumner Elementary. I have been teaching for 19 years. I grew up in the area, but moved to Memphis, TN to begin teaching. After having 3 boys of my own, I returned to North Carolina to resume teaching. I have 2 Master's degrees in Curriculum and Gifted Education. I have experience in teaching all types of learners from diverse backgrounds. I believe in a structured environment with high expectations for all students. I love teaching and kids are the world to me! I look forward to a successful year with collaboration so that all students can succeed.
