My name is Melissa Faulkner. I am excited to be able to introduce myself to you as the principal of Nicholas County Middle and High School. I have been married to my husband Jeremy, for 16 years. We have two lovely daughters Jordyn who is 12, and Brynlee who is 10.
This year begins my 17th year in education. I previously taught in Bourbon County, here in Nicholas County for 6 years, and most recently in Mason County. I am excited to be back and in this new role. I truly love the town of Carlisle, the kindness of the people, and the sense of community and family that our schools have.
One of the most important aspects of my work as principal will be building relationships with the students, teachers and families. Having previously taught here, many of the students I had at the elementary are now with me at the high school. I have already forged great relationships with those students and their families. I look forward to reestablishing those and building new ones with the students I haven’t had in the classroom.
My goal is to ensure that each student is healthy, happy, and safe, so learning can take place. This only comes with support from our families and community. It really does take a village to raise a child, and I am glad to be among this village helping to raise these children.
I have an open door policy and if there is ever anything I can do for any of you, please don’t hesitate to come see me.
