Mrs. Ankara McKinney Thomas

I am so excited to be a part of the CTLA family! I am a graduate of Saint Augustine's University and NCA&T State University. I am married with a 5 year old son. Before I became a teacher I was a TRIO counselor at Saint Augustine's University for 6 years. I enjoyed working with students so much I decided to get a full time teaching position, first in Wake County now I am back home in Johnston County. I enjoy cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family. I look forward to working with all of you this school year!

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.

  • ACCESS testing for English Language Learners

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
