Hello! I am so excited to start our 2021-2022 year at FOES!
A little about me:
Proud military spouse.
Momma of two great daughters!
Doggie momma to three adorable pups.
I love to travel, everywhere!
I am a UNCW graduate times two, once for my undergraduate studies and then again for my graduate degree!
I am passionate about serving my students and their families.
I believe in constant and clear communication.
I love teaching! I've taught Prek, Kinder, Second, Third, and Fourth grades, every grade is special.
We WILL make it a great year together! Here's to an awesome school year!
My favorite motto in the classoom, "We were made to do hard things!" Third grade is an awesome adventure and I am so happy I get to share it with your family!

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
