Hello! My name is Melissa White and I am so happy to be part of the Shuford Owl family.
I am originally from New Bern, NC and graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. In New Bern, I taught Kindergarten for 6 years before moving to Hickory. I have three beautiful girls and a wonderful husband that works for the USPS. I love singing, painting, fitness, sports, and chocolate!
I enjoy leading, motivating and preparing my 5th-grade students for their transition to middle school.
I absolutely love teaching and I share that love with my students.
I encourage responsibility, diversity, teamwork, leadership, and creativity.
I'm excited about a wonderful school year with eager learners and motivated minds!
Shuford is a Blended Learning School; therefore, a great chunk of our learning and instruction will take place online and through a Learning Management System called CANVAS. If at any time you have any questions, please check out that page.
