Ms. Leydi Parra
I was born and raised in Medellin, Colombia. I moved to the United States in 2011 and started teaching ESL in Johnston County Schools at Selma Elementary. I went back to Colombia in 2016 where I continued teaching EFL, and came back to Johnston County for the 2019-2020 school year. This is my second year teaching at Dixon Road and Benson Elementary. I love learning about other cultures and ways of living, and I love travelling, hiking, reading, and watching movies. I also love cats and dogs. My favorite color is black. I love teaching because I get to learn so many things!

While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
