About Teacher



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Melaney Orr

I was born in Onslow county in 1983. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Alex, for 18 years.   We have 3 sons;  Alex Jr., Blaine, and Harrison. My oldest, Alex, will be a freshmen at Richlands High School, Blaine will be in 5th grade at Trexler Middle, and Harrison will be across the hall in 2nd grade. I graduated from Richlands High School 2001. I received my Associates of Arts from Coastal Carolina Community College.  I went on to University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Psychology.  

I am beginning my 19th year teaching for Onslow County. I taught kindergarten for 12 years at Heritage and Stateside Elementary. This is my 7th year teaching 2nd grade. I am very excited and looking forward to the new year! 

 Here is a little about me. My favorite places to visit are the beach and mountains. I love sunflowers, the color turquoise, gray, and black. Sweet tea and chocolate are my favorite! I am your typical boymom so we are involved in baseball, football, boyscouts, and we love to fish and hunt.
