Ms. Maleya Luis

Hello! My name is Maleya Luis (she/her), and I will be teaching English 1, English 2, and English 2 Honors this year at West Craven High School. I just moved to New Bern from Portland, Oregon, where I have lived all my life. I'm very excited to be a part of the Eagle community!

I graduated from Portland State University in 2020 with my Bachelor of Arts degree in English and writing, and again in 2021 with my Master's degree in Education.

It is my goal to foster a classroom environment that puts students first, values their perspective and safety, and tries to inform them of the world they live in, while encouraging them to contribute to that world in ways they see fit. 

In my free time, I enjoy playing with my cat, Will -- the fluffiest cat you will ever see. I also like to play piano and sing, read, write, play video games and board games, garden, and bake!

I'm looking forward to a great school year here at WCH!
