Mrs. Melissa L. Thomas
I am a native of Onslow County and a product of the Dixon community. I graduated from Dixon High School in 1990 and graduated with my BA in Elementary Education from UNC Wilmington in 1994. I was a classroom teacher for 14 years at Summersill Elementary and Dixon Elementary. In 2011, I added Academically and Gifted Licensure from East Carolina University to my teaching license. In 2012 I transitioned into the role as AIG Specialist in Onslow County Schools. I have been fortunate to work at Stateside Elementary, Queens Creek Elementary, Clyde Erwin Elementary Magnet School, Blue Creek Elementary. I am happy to return to the Dixon community, as I am working with gifted students at Dixon Elementary and Dixon Middle School.
My husband Richard and I have been married since 1994 and we are the proud parents of Josh and Sadie. Josh is currently attending UNC Chapel Hill and Sadie is a student at Dixon High School.
