Ms. Melissa Lemonds

I am so excited to continue my teaching career at Sumner Elementary.  I have been teaching for 20 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.
