Mrs. Melissa Bourgeois

Welcome to my page!  I am Melissa Bourgeois and I am very excited about the upcoming school year! This is my fourth year with Northside High School and my 16th year of teaching.

Here's a little bit of information about me:

I moved here in 2002 from Hawaii (I am originally from Mississippi) with my husband, who is a retired US Marine.  I earned my B.S.B.A. in Entrepreneurial Studies from Hawaii Pacific University in 2001 and a Master of Arts in Education with a concentration in Business Education from East Carolina University in 2009.  In 2011, I earned my National Board for Teaching Certification.  I began teaching in February of 2005 at Northwoods Park Middle School and moved to Richlands High School at the start of the 2005-2006 school year.  In August of 2016, I left RHS and Onslow County Schools.  While away from the district, I began volunteering at Philippians Place and served on the Board of Directors for a year.  I also began teaching continuing education courses for Coastal Carolina Community College.  While at CCCC, I made the decision to come back to Onslow County Schools--I missed being in the secondary classroom a lot!

I have been married to my husband for 24 years and have a 23-year-old daughter and a 17-year-old son.  I have some fur babies as well--two miniature dachshunds-Stormy and Gumbo. Some of my favorite things include watching The Office, listening to Fleetwood Mac and Lady Gaga, baking, and working out.

I am excited about getting to know each of you this school year!
