Miss Joy Alford
Hello, my name is Joy Alford and this is my first year teaching! I graduated from UNCW in December 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I grew up here in Clayton and I am so excited to be back home teaching in the Johnston County School System. Teaching has been my passion since I was just a little girl, so I can't wait to share that love with your child this year! A few things about me... I love the beach, traveling, reading, and watching funny shows on Netflix.
Johnston County Public Schools is in the business of providing a holistic educational experience that affirms and prepares our students for successful lives by teaching not only academic disciplines but how to treat one another. We are aware of recent social media posts and other unacceptable actions that have brought attention to racial and political insensitivity, which this school district does not condone.
As the school year comes to a close, please note that JCPS meal service will now operate at 9 sites during the summer months, rather than the previous 14. Summer meal service will begin Monday, June 1. Curbside meals will be served Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Benson Middle, Clayton Middle, Four Oaks Elementary, North Johnston Middle, Princeton Elementary, Selma Elementary, Smithfield-Selma High, West Clayton Elementary, and West Smithfield Elementary.
