Mrs. Melissa Costin

It is my pleasure to serve as the principal of Kings Creek School and I am thrilled to be a Viking!

My husband Brian is the Theatre Teacher at Hibriten High School and my son Caleb attends South Caldwell High School.  Our family comes from the eastern part of North Carolina and our extended family remains in the Wilmington area.

I attended Appalachian State University (Go Mountaineers!) for my undergraduate degree in English, Secondary Education.  After graduating from Appalachian, I began teaching high school English.  After obtaining my administrative degree at UNC-Wilmington (Go Seahawks!) and completing an internship as an Assistant Principal at a middle school and an elementary school there, my husband and I moved to the western part of the state.

I have found the staff to be exceptional, the children to be delightful, and the parents and community supportive of this wonderful school.  I am so excited to be a Kings Creek Viking and I look forward to a great year!
