Financial Secretary

My name is Melissa Whaley and I am a native of Richlands, NC.  I am married to my husband David and we have four wonderful children.  I graduated from Richlands High School in 1992, and I received my BA in Political Science from East Carolina University in 1995.  After college graduation, I moved to Wilmington, NC, and pursued a career in the finance industry.  I held such jobs as branch manager for a bank, commercial loan officer, and mortgage loan originator.  I moved back to Richlands in 2008 and decided I wanted to look for a new career that would allow me to use my love for children, my thirst for knowledge, and the desire to mentor others everyday.  I decided to try my hand at substitute teaching which eventually led to my becoming a teacher assistant at Stateside Elementary.  I have since returned to my "financial roots" by becoming the Financial Secretary here at the school.  I thoroughly enjoy my interaction with the students and the parents and hope to continue in this job for many years to come.
