1st Grade

Hello, my name is Melissa Leak and I am so excited to be teaching 1st grade at Salemburg Elementary!  I have been married to my husband, Frank, for 27 years and we have three daughters, Eliza 21, Annie 20, and Charlotte 16. We moved to Clinton two years ago. My husband is from Clinton and has always wanted to move back to the eastern part of the state. Before that we were in Winston Salem, NC for 13 years where I taught yoga to children and adults and I was a preschool teacher.  I have my BFA in Painting from UNC-G and my Masters in Teaching from UNCW.  My email is
