Ms. Melanie Hemphill
Greetings Bulldog Family!
I am excited to be returning back to Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School for my second consecutive year. Prior to becoming a Bulldog, I spent 9 years in the Broward County Public School system in FL.
Originally I am from Buffalo NY (GO BILLS!), and moved to Florida at the age of 9. I grew up singing gospel music, beginning at the age of 5, and have done a few professional recordings. In High School, I was also a Bulldog, but of South Broward HS. There, I played sports: track, soccer, swimming, flag-football and gymnastics and was also apart of different clubs and organizations. I went on to run track at Florida International University, focusing on long and triple jumps and eventually received my degree in Elementary Education, with ESOL. I then went on to get certified in Exceptional Student Education (ESE- K-12), as well as English 6-12.
Taught middle school English for 7 years and also served as an Equity Liason, Peer Counseling Coordinator, as well as certified in Youth and Adult Mental Health First aid. I also facilitate trainings relating to: Courageous Conversations about Race, Social Emotional Learning, Mindfulness, Cultural Responsiveness, Implicit Biases and more. Upon completing my Masters in Educational leadership, I knew it was time for me to prepare for the next phase in my life, which lead me here to North Carolina.
In the short amount of time here, I have felt and witnessed a community full of passion, dedication, authenticity and charisma. The potential for growth and prosperity for Southeast is inevitable and I am beyond ecstatic to be a piece of the puzzle in ensuring overall student success. I am excited to bring my expertise, passion and experineces and blend it with the different models of Wake County including Restorative Practices as well as the Community Resiliency Model (CRM), as well as the Core beliefs and Values of SRMHS. I'm excited to be a Bulldog again, and ready to promote and sustain that BULLDOG PRIDE!
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or if you would just like to chat about some things you would like to see here at Southeast. I am always open to brain-storming and collaborating, and I look forward to serving you and our entire Southeast Family.
