Mrs. Melissa Clinkscales

My name is Melissa Clinkscales, and I am a second grade teacher here at Bath Elementary School. I have been teaching in the Beaufort County School System since 2007. My family and I moved back to Beaufort County in 2007 after living in Raleigh for several years. While in Raleigh, I attended Meredith College and received a Bachelor of Science in Child Development as well as my Elementary Education Teaching Licensure. I worked in the Wake County Public School System for five years, where I taught first grade. After moving back to Beaufort County, I taught at Chocowinity Primary School for six years, teaching both third and first grade. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach at Bath, where I also attended!

I now live in Bath with my husband, Mark, and our two sons, Carson and Reed. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and reading. I also love spending time traveling to the beach or the mountains!

I am so excited to have your child in my class this year! Together, we will work to make him or her be successful in second grade. Please join our Class Dojo account for frequent communication and pictures of fun learning experiences taking place in our classroom. Also, please feel free to use the contact information listed on this site if you have any questions or concerns. I'm looking forward to a great year!
