Mrs. Melissa Pickens
Welcome! My name is Melissa Pickens. I am originally from southern Illinois, but my family and I moved to North Carolina in January of 2018. This is my fourth year at CCHS, and I have a total of 17.5 years of mathematics teaching experience. I have a Bachelors in Mathematics from McKendree College/University and a Masters of Science in Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Mathematics Education from Southern Illinois University. My prior experience in teaching includes Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, College Algebra, College Geometry, Calculus III, and Differential Equations. This Spring 2023, I am teaching STEM Honors Math 3 and AP Calculus AB. I love being a member of the faculty at CCHS and look forward to having a great semester! The best method to use to contact me is through my school email. I'm happy to address any questions or concerns you might have throughout the semester.
It is VERY IMPORTANT for me to be able to contact the parent(s)/guardian(s) of my students. My preference for quick contact purposes is EMAIL. I send out a weekly email every Monday or Tuesday. Parent(s)/Guardian(s), if you don't have a CORRECT email address (or phone number) in PowerSchool, please contact the office to get it updated.
Please, consider emailing me from any new email address that you plan on using. Be sure to include your student's name. You can also include any new phone numbers.
