Mrs. Melissa Hensley

6th Grade English/Language Arts


About me

I was born and raised in Johnston County near Clayton. I developed a love of reading before I could read on my own. My love of books continued throughout my school years and into the rest of my life. I attended East Carolina University to get my bachelors degree and later, my master's degree.

Although teaching was not my first career, I found my way to education which I believe is my true calling. I began teaching middle school Language Arts at Southern Nash Middle. After several years, I decided to move to a smaller school and closer to home. I have been teaching Language Arts for twelve years. I also have coached volleyball at Forest Hills for the last six years.

I believe every child should have the opportunity to experience and excel in whatever their heart desires. My job is to not only educate my students in Language Arts but prepare them for the real world.
